Calculator to convert from Amps to VA with explanation of the formula and practical examples.
It also shows a table and the step by step of the quick and easy conversion.
- VL-L=Volts Line-Line.
- VL-N=Volts Line-Neutral.
How to convert Amp. to VA in only 1 step:
Multiply the amps by the voltage indicated in the formula. For example, a three-phase fan (3P) has a current of 10A with a voltage of 208VL-L, then multiply 10A by the voltage 208V and the root of three, which will result in: 3602VA. (10Ax208Vx√3) = 3602VA).
Definition Amperes and S (VA):
VA: A Volt-ampere, commonly referred to as a VA, is commonly used as a unit of power in obtaining the electrical capacity of circuit breakers, uninterrupted power supplies and wirings.
VA is larger than Watts because loads are inductive such as motors, discharge lighting, reactors and more current is required to keep the magnetic field energized than is -turned into heat (W).
Inductive devices or loads such,. as tansformers and motors having power factor less than 1.0 are generally rated in VA.
Ampere: Amperage is a term often used by electricians, and means electrical current, measured in amperes, or amps. The ampere is the SI unit for electrical current, or the amount of electrical charge that flows through a conductor in a given time. One ampere is a charge of one coulomb — about 6.241 X 1018 electrons — per second flowing past a given point.
