What is kva?


KVA is volt-ampere where the amount of power in an electrical circuit is equal to the product of voltage and current. It is a formula in units of 1000. KVA is a very easy and simple formula that is used.
1 Additional Answer
KVA stands for kilovolt-amperes, which is a measure of power. It is the product of the root mean square voltage and root mean square current. In the context of AC power KVA is slightly different from kilowatts, since the current and voltage may be slightly out of phase depending on the circuit. To get kW, you need to multiple the kVA by a power factor, which depends on the phase relationship of the current and voltage.
