**Kilo-volt-amperes (kVA) and ampere** are the units of two different parameters of electricity. While the former quantifies the amount of apparent power that can be supplied by the power source, the latter quantifies the amount of current drawn by the load. You can use the following **calculator** to convert **kVA to amps**. Enter the kVA and voltage for calculation.

## What is kVA?

It is basically the unit of apparent power and is the product of RMS values of voltage and current.

**One kVA is 1000 volt – amperes**

**What is ampere?**

Ampere is the measure of electric current.

One ampere is equal to the amount of current flow measured by an ammeter when one coulomb of charge is going past it.

**Calculation of current from kVA**

**Single-phase** kVA to amps

For single phase, current can be calculated from kVA using the following formula.

Single phase current = (kVA X 1000) / Voltage

**Three-phase** kVA to amps** when Line to Line voltage is known**

For three phase, current can be calculated from kVA using the following formula.

Three phase current,

Current = (kVA X 1000) / ( √3 X Voltage) = (kVA X 1000) / ( 1.732 X Voltage)

**Three-phase kVA to amps** **when Phase voltage is known**

For three phase, current can be calculated from kVA using the following formula.

Three phase current,

Current = (kVA X 1000) / (3 X Voltage)
