Definitions for "Volt-ampere"
Keywords:  ampere, apparent, kva, amps, watt
VA - In an a.c. circuit, a measure of apparent power, given by: VA-EI, where E is the potential in volts; I is the curernt in amperes; and VA is apparent power in volt-amperes
a unit of electrical power in an AC circuit equal to the power dissipated when 1 volt produces a current of 1 ampere
The product of volts times amps. A kilovolt-ampere (kVA) is equal to one thousand volt-amperes. VA is also known as apparent power.
