Amp to kw – Conversion, formula, chart, convert and calculator free.

With this calculator you can convert online of Amperes to kW or kW to Amperes automatically, easily, quickly and free.

In order to facilitate the calculation we explain what formula is used, how to calculation in only 2 steps, table and examples of Ampere to kW conversions.

We also show the typical power factors of different constructions, appliances and motors.

Amp to kW calculation formula:Formula from Amp to kW

  • kW = kilowatt or kilowatts.
  • V LN = Volts line to neutral.
  • V LL = Voltage line to line.
  • I AC1Ø = Current / monophase Amps.
  • I AC2Ø = Current / Biphasic Amps.
  • I AC3Ø = Current / Three- phase Amps.
  • FP = Load power factor.

How to convert Amps to kW in 2 steps.

How to convert or change from Amps to kW in just 2 steps

Step 1:

Multiply the corresponding voltage according to the formula by the power factor, the current and the root of three. For example, if you have a 220V (Linea-Line) refrigerator with a power factor of 0.8, and a current of 5 Amps, you should multiply 220 × 0.8x√3 × 5 and obtain 1524.20. 220 × 0.8x√3 × 5) = 1524.20.

Step 2:

Divide step 1 by 1000, taking the previous example we would have: (220 × 0.8x√3 × 5) / 1000 = 1.52kW.

Examples of conversions for Amps to kW:

Example 1:

Is there a mill with a load of 50A, three-phase to 220V line-line, with a power factor of 0.85 and a line-neutral voltage of 127V, which will be the power in kW of the mill?

Rta: // To find the result we must multiply the amperage, the line-line voltage, the power factor and the root of three in the following way: 50Ax220Vx0,85x√3 = 16194, then we simply divide the previous result by 1000, which will give an amperage of 16.1kW

Example 2:

We have a hair dryer, single phase, 1F, with an amperage of 12A, a voltage of 120V line-neutral and a power factor of 0.88, what power in kW does the hair dryer have?

Rta: // Taking into account the formula for monophasic amperage, we must multiply the amperage by the voltage and the power factor, to finally divide the previous one by 1000, as we can see below: (12Ax120Vx0,88) / 1000 = 1 , 27kW.

Example 3:

We have a 30A, bifasica stove, with a voltage of 240V line-line and 127 line-neutral, with a power factor of 0.99, which will be the power in kW of the stove?

Rta: // To know the answer, you must multiply the amperage 30A, by the voltage line to neutral 127V, by the power factor and by 2, and then divide the previous one by 1000, as follows: (30Ax127Vx0,99 × 2) / 1000, resulting in: 7.54kW

How to use the Amp calculator to kW:

It is very simple, first enter the amperage to convert, then choose the type of AC or DC current, according to the current chosen different parameters are requested so you must be aware of the boxes on the left in the calculator, then choose the number of phases 1, 2 or 3, this parameter only applies to when you choose AC current, then enter the power factor, if you do not know what power factor the load has you can see some here.

Continue entering the voltage, this section is very important, you must enter the voltage indicated by the table to the left (line-line voltage or line-neutral voltage), otherwise the result may not be correct, finally you give “Calculate” and then if you want to perform another “restart” calculation.
