# Kilowatts to Amps Calculator

Kilowatts to Amps Calculator

This tool will help you calculate or convert the units from KiloWatt to Amps. Just select the Current Type, enter the number of KWs and hit calculate.

By using the tool, you can breakdown the energy consumed at your home easily and cut on the cost as well. Just enter the few details such Current Type, number of KWs, Voltage and hit calculate. You can breakdown units further by calculating the % of electricity consumed by the electronics in your home if you can fill the required details correctly.

Note: We need to use *e *for scientific notation such as 5e3, 4e-8, 1.45e12

We have mentioned below formulae which are standards for converting KiloWatts to Amperes in DC or AC.

##### DC kilowatts to amps calculation

Here we need to understand that current I in amps (A) is equal to 1000 times the power P in kilowatts (kW), divided by the voltage V in volts (V):

I(A) = 1000 × P(kW) / V(V)

##### AC single phase kilowatts to amps calculation

However, the phase current I in amps (A) is equal to 1000 times the power P in kilowatts (kW), divided by the power factor PF times the RMS voltage V in volts (V):

I(A) = 1000 × P(kW) / (PF × V(V) )

##### AC to 3 Phase kWatts to AMPs calculation

###### For calculations With The Line to Line Voltage

The phase current I in amps (A) is equal to 1000 times the power P in kilowatts (kW), divided by square root of 3 times the power factor PF times the line to line RMS voltage VL-L in volts (V):

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

###### For Calculations With The Line to Neutral Voltage

The phase current I in amps (A) is equal to 1000 times the power P in kilowatts (kW), divided by 3 times the power factor PF times the line to neutral RMS voltage VL-N in volts (V):

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