Diesel generator manufacturers teach you how to distinguish between kilowatts and kilovolt-amperes
Release Date: 2018-01-31

We always see KW and KVA on the diesel generator set brand. Beginners can easily confuse the two, and they are always confused about the relationship between the two. The following diesel generator set manufacturers teach you how to distinguish between kilowatts and kilovolt-amperes:
KVA is the apparent power, which includes active power and reactive power.
Kilowatt KW is the active power.
Kilowatt (KW) = kilovolt-ampere (KVA) times power factor.
1KW = 1.25KVA or 1KVA = 0.8KW
Generator active power unit KW (kw)
Generator apparent power unit KVA (kV) (also called installed capacity)
Active power = apparent power × power factor power factor = Cosφ (typically 0.85)
In addition:
Generator reactive power unit KVar (thousands of exhaustion)
Apparent power ^ 2 = active power ^ 2 + reactive power ^ 2
P = UIcosφ
P = UI is only suitable for pure resistive load, because the power factor of the resistive load is 1; however, the power factor of the inductive load is not 1, it is 0.5-0.9, or even lower.
So 1kva = 0.8kw
1kva = 1kw is all about 1kva = 0.8kw, which is the calculation method when the power factor is 0.8.
