## How many watts makes 1kva?

Originally Answered: How many watts does 1kva equal to? Watts are a unit of power and power equals voltage multiplied by the current. So 1 kva equals 1000 volt amps, meaning volts multiplied by amps, therefore equals **1000 watts**.

## How is motor wattage calculated?

By taking the voltage and multiplying it by the associated current, the power can be determined. A watt (W) is a unit of power defined as one Joule per second. For a DC source the calculation is simply the voltage times the current: **W = V x A.**
