## Definition VA and S (kVA):

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 (Watts).

Inductive devices or loads such,. as tansformers and motors having power factor less than 1.0 are generally rated in VA.

kVA=It is the same power previously named (VA) only that is a thousand times greater.
