kilo Volt Amp - or 1,000 multiplied by volts multiplied by amps.

A unit of electrical power, equal to 1,000 volt-amperes.

An acronym for kilovolt-amps (See VA) that is a measure of apparent power; 1 kVA = 1000 VA.

Kilovolt amp which sizes three phase loads. Can be converted to Kilowatts by multiplying the KVA by the power factor 0.8. For examples visit our Generator Sizing page.

Kilovolt Ampere, more information ...

Kilovolt amperes (volt ampere product x 1000).

Kilo Volt Amperes unit of measurement used to describe the output capacity of a generator.

kilovolt per ampere

kVA is a term for rating electrical devices. A device's kVA rating is equal to its rated output in amperes multiplied by its rated operating voltage. In the case of three-phase generator sets, kVA is the kW ouput rating divided by 0.8, the rated power factor. kVA is the vector sum of the active power (kW) and the reactive power (kVAR) flowing in a circuit.

Kilovolt-amperes. The total volts times amps divided by 1,000, demanded by a welding power source from the primary power furnished by the utility company.

Kilovolt amperes; apparent power.

Kilovolt Ampere rating designates the output which a transformer can deliver at rated voltage and frequency without exceeding a specified temperature rise..

Kilovolt amperes (1000-volt amps).

Abbreviation for kilovolt-amperes. (1,000 x volt-amperes) L-N

Abbreviation for kilovolt-amperes (1000 volt-amperes).

Kilovolt Ampere - total capacity measurement unit

Kilo Volt Amperes. Power Factor adjusted kW demands = kVa (true power).

KVA refers to kilovolt-ampere and is the unit used to express apparent power. This unit of measure for power consumption is used for equipment that is not resistive such as motors, computers, and most non-incandescent lighting.

Unit of electrical power. Power "apparent" described in KVA is not the same as power "tru" expressed in Watts. Power (watts)=Power Factor x power (kVA). The power factor lies between 0 and 1; often 0.8 to 0.9

Kilo Volt-ampere. One thousand volt-amperes (VA). See also VA.

Kilovolt Amperes, often referred to as the Total Power, it is the sum of working power (KW), and the non-working power (KVAR). Non-working power is the current that is needed to electrify the system to reduce resistance and line loss.

KVA is kilovolt-ampere and is the unit of apparent power. KVA is used for measuring the power consumption of non-resistive equipments such as motors, computers, and most non-incandescent lighting.

Kilovolt Ampere rating that is a measurement of the output of a transformer without exceeding a certain temperature.

kilo-Volt-Ampere; 1000 Volt Amperes; a measure of apparent power.
