Watts to kW conversion

This is a conversion calculator that is used to convert the power in watts (W) to the power in kilowatts (kW). When using the converter, the first step is to enter the watt value in the blank text field. The ‘Convert’ button executes the conversion from watts to kilowatts. This gives the conversion result, displayed below the control buttons in kilowatts. The ‘Reset’ button is used to enhance the flexibility of the Watt to Kilowatt converter since it can only perform one conversion at a time. It readjusts the calculator with a single click to allow for more conversions.

Example

Convert 4500 watts to kilowatts

Solution

First, enter the watt value (4500) in the blank text field. Press the ‘Convert’ button to initiate the conversion from a watt to kilowatts. The conversion result is shown as;

Kilowatts result: 4.5 kW

Calculation:

4500 W / 1000

= 4.5 kW

This means that there are 4.5 kilowatts in 4500 watts

Use the same procedure when converting new values in watts to get the corresponding result in kilowatts. 

The formula of converting Watts to Kilowatts

The power units’ conversion factor of watts to kilowatts is 0.001.

1 Watt = 0.001 kW

This implies that there are 0.001 kilowatts in one watt. If you want to determine the number of kilowatts in a watt, simply multiply the value in watts by the conversion factor.

For example; Convert 200 watts to kilowatts

Solution:

200 x 0.001

= 0.2 kilowatts in 200 Watts.

Alternatively, the power in kilowatts can be determined by dividing the power in watts by 1000.

P (kW) = P (W) / 1000

For example; convert 6,500 watts to kilowatts

Solution:

6,500 / 1000

= 6.5 kilowatts in 6500 watts.

The Watts to Kilowatts conversion table is used to determine the conversions of common values from watts to kilowatts on a scale of 0W to 1000000W.
