# Kilowatts to Amps conversion

## Select current type, enter current in amps, voltage in volts, power factor for AC circuit and press the Calculate button:

 Direct Current (DC) Single Phase Alternating Current (AC) Three Phase Alternating Current (AC) Kilowatts: kW Voltage type: Line to line voltage Line to neutral voltage Volts: V Power factor: Power factor: V Result (amps): A
 DC Kilowatts to Amps calculation The current I in amps (A) is equal to 1000 times the power P in kilowatts (kW) divided by the voltage V in volts (V): I(A) = 1000 * P(kW) / V(V) / 1000

 AC Single Phase Kilowatts to Amps calculation The phase current I in amps (A) is equal to 1000 times the power P in kilowatts (kW) divided by the power factor PF times the RMS voltage V in volts (V): I(A) = 1000 * P(kW)) / (PF * V(V))

 AC Three Phase Kilowatts to Amps calculation Calculation with line to line voltage The phase current I in amps (A) is equal to 1000 times the power P in kilowatts (kW) divided by the square root of 3 times the power factor PF times the line to line RMS voltage VL-L in volts (V): I(A) = 1000 * P(kW) / (√3 * PF * VL-L(V)) Calculation with line to neutral voltage The phase current I in amps (A) is equal to 1000 times the power P in kilowatts (kW) divided by 3 times the power factor PF times the line to neutral RMS voltage VL-N in volts (V): I(A) = 1000 * P(kW) / (3 * PF * VL-N(V))
