## Watt to kW calculation formula 3phase, 2 phase, 1 phase: • Watts=Watt is the unit of power (symbol: W).
• kW=One kilowatt is equal to 1000 watts.

## Step 1:

Divide the watts by 1000. Example, if you have a TV that consumes 250w, you should divide 250 by 1000, the result will be: 0.25kW (250w / 1000 = 0.25kw)

## Definition watts and kW:

Watts: is Working Power (also called Actual Power or Active Power or Real Power). It is the power that actually powers the equipment and performs useful work.

The real power in watts is the power that performs work or generates heat. Power in watts is the rate at which energy is consumed (or generated). One watt is one joule (energy) per second (1 W = 1 J/s).

Resistive devices or loads such as heaters, incandescent lamps are rated in Watts.

kW: One kilowatt is equal to 1000 watts.
