# Volt Amp. (VA) to Amp. (Amperes) – Convert, conversion, table and formula

Tool to convert from VA to Amps , with formula and explanation of how to convert step by step.

Additionally, some descriptive examples are shown with the main equivalences tabulated and finally the steps for the conversion.

Mas informacion:

## VA to Amps calculation formula for generator and transformer: • IAC=Ampere.
• VL-L=Volts Line-Line.
• VL-N=Volts Line-Neutral.
• VA=Volt-Ampere.

## How to convert VA to Amp. in only 1 step:

Step 1:

Divide VA between the voltage indicated by the formula. For example a three-phase fan (3P) has a power of 1500VA with a voltage of 208VL-L, then you must divide 1500VA between the voltage 208V and root of three which will result in: 4.16Amp. (1500VA/(208Vx√3) = 4.16Amp).

## 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.
