In order to convert amps, short for amperes, into kVA (Kilovolt-ampere), current in amps and the voltage in volts has to be multiplied and then divided by 1000. Mathematically, kVA = Current (in amp) * Voltage (in volts) / 1000.
Continue ReadingAn amp is a unit of electric current, while a kVA (Kilovolt-ampere) is a unit of apparent power of an electrical circuit; hence it's not possible to directly convert amps into kVA without going through the accompanying calculations. Apparent power, denoted by "S" and measured by kVA, is equal to real power for a direct current (DC) circuit. However, for alternating current (AC) circuits, the real power and the apparent power differs by the ratio known as "power factor".

Full Answer >The power of an electrical system, measured in watts, is equal to its voltage multiplied by its current, measured in amperes, typically shortened to "amps." The current of an electrical system indicates its flow rate, or how fast the electricity is moving through the system.
Full Answer >Copper 12-gauge wire can handle 20 amperes of current, and aluminum 12-gauge wire can handle 15 amperes. Temperature doesn't affect the amount of current 12-gauge wire can carry, though it can affect other gauges.
Full Answer >To use an Exide car battery charger, remove the battery from the vehicle, attach the charging cables to it, and choose the appropriate voltage and amperes on the charger. Then, provide power supply to the charger, and adjust the charging time to charge the battery for the required period. Finally, disconnect the charger, and replace the battery in the vehicle.
