Note, For higher values like 5×10^{3}, 10×10^{6}, 1.6 x10^{12}, enter the value like this for scientific notation as 5e3, 10e6, 1.6e12, etc.
Conversion Using the Power Formula :
AC Single Phase Watts to KVA Calculation:
The apparent power (S) in kilovoltamps (kVA) is equal to the Real Power (P) in watts (W), divided by 1000 times the power factor Pf:
For example, Let’s convert 8000 watts to kVA given a power factor of 0.90.
S_{(KVA)} = 8000 ÷ 1000 x 0.90
KVA = 7.200
Where:

 S = Apparent Power in Kilovoltamps (Kva)
 P = Real Power in Watts (W)
 Cosθ = Power factor in AC circuits

Frequently asked questions
kVA Is short for kilovoltamperes. It’s a unit of measurement used to refer to electricity in the form of “apparent power” in an AC (alternating current ) or DC (direct current) electrical circuit.
It’s measured as the product of the voltage, which represents electrical pressure, and the electrical current (amperes).
KVA stands for kilovoltamperes. kilo is the scientific prefix for 1000 & in a purely resistive system a voltampere is a watt, therefore in a purely resistive system 1000 watts = 1000 voltamperes = 1 KVA.
Solution: The formula for the conversion of KVA to KW is as follows: KVA × pf = KW, where pf is the power factor.
What is a unit of electricity? 1 unit of electricity is equal to one kilowatthour. It is the amount of power required to use an appliance of 1000 watts or, 1kW power rating for an hour.
If you have a 1A circuit, 1 volt is equal to 1W. However, amps make the difference, too. So at 10A, 1 volt is equal to 10W. And if you have a 100A circuit, 1 volt is equal to 100W.
