Watts to VA Calculator

It is a converter which calculates the real power in watts (W) to volt in amps (VA). It is simple to use and can be accessed at any time since it is readily available.

This conversion calculator has two text fields which require you to enter the real power in watts and the power factor in volt-amps before clicking the ‘Calculate' button. The ‘Reset' button is used to erase all the text fields when you want to perform new calculations. The result in volt amps is displayed below the two control buttons.

Watts and Volt amps have different quantities that are why they cannot be converted directly. It is always important to fill all the text fields before clicking the ‘Calculate' button.

Formula for calculating the watts to volt amps

S (VA) = P (W) / PF, which means that the apparent power S in volt amps is calculated by dividing the real power in watts by the power factor (PF).

It can also be expressed as;

Volt amps = watts / PF or VA = W / PF

For example,
If the real power is 4500 W with a power factor of 0.6, what is the apparent power in volt amps?

S (VA) = P (W) / PF

= 4500 W / 0.6 = 7500 Watts (W)

In case you need to perform other calculations, you can always use the ‘Reset' button to clear all the text fields. The Watts to Volt amps online calculator is free which means it can be accessed at any time from the website.

It is programmed to deliver accurate results, and it will depend on the values entered in their required text fields. It executes one conversion at a time which requires you to coordinate the ‘Calculate' and ‘Reset' buttons when performing the calculations.
