  • Normally VA (volts-amperes) is the same as Watts, so kVA is the same as kilowatts. In the case of motors there's something called power factor that may make VA somewhat different from Watts.
  • KVA is Kilo volt amperes.It's the product of voltage and current. It's the unit of power in electrical terms.When we multiply KVA with the powerfactor,we get kilowatts Mathematically, KVA*Q=KW where Q is the powerfactor ie the cos of the angle between the direction of voltage and current.When there is no angle or the angle is 0 Q=1 and there KVA=KW. Hope that helps.
