Kilovolt Ampere to Amperes Conversion Calculator

Enter phase #:  
Enter kilovolt-amps: kVA
Enter volts: V
   
Result in amps: A
It is a conversion calculator which converts Kilovolts-amps (kVA) with the voltage in volts to amps (A). To get the current amps, you will begin by selecting the phase which can be either a single phase or a three phase. Enter the kilovolts-amps followed by the volts in the same order.

It is important to know that Kilovolts-amps cannot be converted directly to current amps because they are different quantities. It is important to include the voltage in volts in the required field for the calculation to be complete. You can use the Calculate button once all the text fields are filled entirely with the right units. The Reset button will be of help if you want to begin a new calculation. It resets everything to the original arrangement.

For example,
If you are using the single phase, you can enter the apparent power in kilovolts-amps as 15 (kVA) and voltage in volts as 5 (V). You will get the current in amps as 3000 (A) after tapping on the calculate button which performs the calculation with a single click. In case you want to carry out new conversions using the three phase, you will first remove all the text fields using the Reset button. Select three phase as your primary option. Enter the apparent power in Kilovolts-amps and then choose the voltage type.

It can either be a line to line or line to neutral voltage. Afterward, you can enter the voltage in volts and click on Calculate button. You can repeat the same procedure if you need to use a different phase or an energy type.

There are formulas which the converter utilizes in performing the calculations

Method of calculating single phase (kVA) to Amps
I (A) = 1000 x S (kVA) / V (V), which means that the current in amps is calculated by multiplying 1000 by apparent power in Kilovolts-amps dividing the result by the Voltage in volts.

Formula of calculating three-phase (kVA) to Amps
Line to line voltage
I (A) = 1000 x S (kVA) / (√3 x V L-L (V)), which means that the phase current in amps is calculated by multiplying 1000 by the apparent power in kilovolt-amps dividing the result by the square root of three multiplied by the line to line voltage RMS in volts

Line to Neutral Voltage
I (A) = 1000 x S (kVA) / (3 x V L-N (V)), which means that the phase current in amps is calculated by multiplying 1000 by the apparent power in Kilovolt-amps and dividing the result by the three multiplied by the line to neutral voltage RMS in volts.
