## How Many Amps in 87000 Kilowatts?

The answer to the question depends on:

- Whether you have a direct (DC) or alternating (AC) flow of electric charge
- In case of an AC single-phase system, the power factor (PF)
- 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 87000 kW to Amps?

- DC: I
_{(A)}= 1000 × 87000 W / V_{(V)} - AC, Single Phase: I
_{(A)}= 1000 × 87000 W / (PF × V_{(V)}) - AC, Three Phase, Line to Line Voltage: I
_{(A)}= 1000 × 87000 W / (√3 × PF × V_{L-L(V)}) - AC, Three Phase, Line to Neutral Voltage: I
_{(A)}= 1000 × 87000 W / (3 × PF × V_{L-0(V)})
