1 kW to amps means the same as changing 1 kilowatt to amps 🙂

## 1 kW to Amps Converter

Circuit

Right below you can find all you want to know about the conversion:

## How Many Amps in 1 Kilowatt?

The answer to the question depends on:

1. Whether you have a direct (DC) or alternating (AC) flow of electric charge
2. In case of an AC single-phase system, the power factor (PF)
3. In case of an AC three-phase system the PF as well as a constant for line to line voltage L-L(V) or line to neutral voltage L-0(V)

In an alternating current circuit, the power factor (PF) is the quotient of real power / apparent power with a value in between 0 and 1: 0 ≤ PF ≤ 1.

In the International System of Units (SI):

• The ampere (A) aka “amp” is the unit of electric current
• The volt (V) is the unit of electric potential
• The kilowatt (kW) is the unit of power
• The ohm (Ω) is the unit of electrical resistance

Next, we explain the math:

## How to Convert 1 kW to Amps?

• DC: I(A) = 1000 × 1 W / V(V)
• AC, Single Phase: I(A) = 1000 × 1 W / (PF × V(V))
• AC, Three Phase, Line to Line Voltage: I(A) = 1000 × 1 W / (√3 × PF × VL-L(V))
• AC, Three Phase, Line to Neutral Voltage: I(A) = 1000 × 1 W / (3 × PF × VL-0(V))

• Similar calculations include, for example:
