How to convert VA to kVA

How to convert apparent power from volt-amps (VA) to kilovolt-amps (kVA).

Volt-amps to kVA calculation formula

The apparent power S in kilovolt-amps (kVA) is equal to the apparent power S in volt-amps (VA), divided by 1000:

S(kVA) =  S(VA) / 1000

 

So kilovolt-amps are equal to volt-amps divided by 1000:

kilovolt-amps = volt-amps / 1000

or

kVA = VA / 1000

Example

What is the apparent power in kilovolt-amps when the apparent power in volt-amps is 3000VA?

Solution:

S = 3000VA / 1000 = 3kVA
