Enter the total kilowatts (kW) and the total voltage (volts) into the calculator to determine the Current From kW. 

Current From kW Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Current From kW. 

Ikw = KW *1000 / V
  • Where Ikw is the Current From kW (amps)
  • KW is the total kilowatts (kW) 
  • V is the total voltage (volts) 

To calculate the current from kW, multiply the kilo-watts by 1000, then divide by the voltage.

How to Calculate Current From kW?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Current From kW.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total kilowatts (kW). In this example, the total kilowatts (kW) is measured to be 5.
  2. Next, determine the total voltage (volts). For this problem, the total voltage (volts) is calculated to be 100.
  3. Finally, calculate the Current From kW using the formula above: 

Ikw = KW *1000 / V

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives: 

Ikw = 5 *1000 / 100 = 50 (amps)

Example Problem #2: 

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are:

total kilowatts (kW) = 3

total voltage (volts) = 50

Entering these values into the formula above gives us:: 

Ikw = 3*1000 / 50 = 60 (amps)
