# Apparent Power Converter

# Introduction

Apparent power is an estimate of alternating current (AC) power that can be calculated by taking the product of root-mean-square (RMS) current and the root-mean-square voltage. In simpler words, apparent power is the power that a network must be able to resist. It can be measured by the unit VA(Volt Ampere).

# Q. What is the Apparent Power Converter tool?

The Apparent Power Converter allows quick conversion between many units of measure from one system to another and saves your time. It can be helpful for engineers and onsite workers who require a quick and easy way to attain solutions for conversions. Apparent power is usually used when planning and operating power systems because regardless of the current linked with reactive power does not work at the load; it needs to be supplied by the power source.

It's equipped with five different units of pace measurement. These units have been explained with respect to the volt below.

Volt to Volt |
1 |

Volt to Millivolt |
1000 |

Volt to Kilovolt |
0.001 |

Volt to Megavolt |
1.0E-6 |

Volt to Gigavolt |
1.0E-9 |

# How to use the Apparent Power Converter tool?

Follow the below-given procedure to obtain your required current:

- Insert the value of the apparent power you need to convert.
- Next, select the unit of the apparent power you have inserted.
- Tap on calculate to obtain the result.

# Why should you use the Apparent Power Converter tool?

Converting the unit of the apparent power from one to another manually requires you to go through tedious and long procedures, can be hectic, and even after that, there is no guarantee that you have calculated the correct values.

The Apparent Power Converter is specially designed to give efficient and accurate answers to the required conversions so that you can ensure safety by using correct values for power determination. Moreover, this tool can be easily accessed from our website with no other requirement except an internet connection to your device.

## FAQs

## Q. How can you calculate apparent power for constant load current?

For constant load current, apparent power is the combination of reactive power and true power. It can be determined by taking the product of a circuit's voltage and current, regardless of phase angle.

## Q. What is the difference between real and apparent power?

Real power is the power consumed due to the resistive load; apparent power is referred to as the power the network must be able to resist.
