# 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
