Converting kVA to watts
For DC application: 2.0 kVA = 2.0 kW or 2000 watts.
For AC equipment, it depends on the power factor (PF)
kVA x PF = kW.
kW x 1000 = watts.
Resistance type loads have a power factor near 1.00,
so 2.0 kVA = 2.0 kW or 2000 watts.
Motors may have a power factor closer to 0.85.
In that case 2.0 kVA x 0.85 = 1.7 kW or 1700 watts.
