This Kilowatts to Amps calculator to convert power in Kilowatts into current result in Amps, select your current type (DC/AC), insert power in kW and voltage, then press Calculate to get the power result in Amps. Swap Amps to kW calculator.

### How to Calculate Kilowatts to Amps

AC, DC Kilowatts to Amps manual calculation

**kW (DC) to Amps formula:**

I(A) = 1000 × P(kW) / V(V)

current I in amps (A) is equal to 1000 multiplied by (P) power in kW, divided by the voltage V in volts.

**kW (AC single phase) to Amps formula:**

I(A) = 1000 × P(kW) / (PF × V(V) )

**kW (AC three phase) to Amps formula:**

Line to line voltage

I(A) = 1000 × P(kW) / (√3 × PF × VL-L(V) )

Line to neutral voltage

I(A) = 1000 × P(kW) / (3 × PF × VL-N(V) )

**(PF) Power Factor values:**

Device | Typical power factor |
---|---|

Resistive load | 1 |

Fluorescent lamp | 0.95 |

Incandescent lamp | 1 |

Induction motor full load | 0.85 |

Induction motor no load | 0.35 |

Resistive oven | 1 |

Synchronous motor | 0.9 |

*For accurate calculations do not use typical power factor values.
