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|
|Induction motor full load||0.85|
|Induction motor no load||0.35|
*For accurate calculations do not use typical power factor values.
