Normally VA (voltsamperes) 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.
