### kW to kVAR Calculator:

Enter the real power in kilowatts (kW), enter the power factor to get the results of kVAR.

### kW to kVAR Calculation

Reactive power Q_{(kVAR)} in kilo volt-ampere reactive is equal to the power factor times of the real power P_{(kW)} in kilowatts. Hence we can calculate the reactive power in kVAR formula,

kVAR = kW * tan (power angle)

Q_{(kVAR)} = P_{(kW)} * tan(φ)

If you know the power factor then,

Q_{(kVAR)} = P_{(kW)} * tan(cos^{-1}(pf))

__Example:__

Calculate the reactive power in kVAR for the 7.5 kW motor-operated 0.9pf.

kVAR = 7.5 x tan (cos^{-1}(pf))

= 7.5 x tan (cos^{-1}(0.9))

= 7.5 x tan (25.84193276)

= 7.5 x 0.4843221

= 3.6kVAR
