### Instructions for Using the Amps to Kilowatts (kW) Conversion Calculator

The Amps to Kilowatts (kW) Conversion Calculator is a versatile tool that allows you to convert electrical current (in amperes) to power (in kilowatts). It supports DC circuits, AC Single Phase circuits, and AC Three Phase circuits with options for Line to Line Voltage and Line to Neutral Voltage. Follow these steps to use the calculator effectively:

**Select the Circuit Type**:- Locate the drop-down menu labeled
**“Circuit Type”**. - Choose the type of circuit you are working with:
**“DC”**,**“AC Single Phase”**, or**“AC Three Phase”**. - Based on your selection, additional input fields will be shown or hidden as required.

- Locate the drop-down menu labeled
**Select the Voltage Type**(for AC Three-Phase Circuits Only):- If you selected
**“AC Three Phase”**as the circuit type, locate the drop-down menu labeled**“Voltage Type”**. - Choose either
**“Line to Line Voltage”**or**“Line to Neutral Voltage”**. - For
**“Line to Line Voltage”**, the voltage is the potential difference between any two phases. - For
**“Line to Neutral Voltage”**, the voltage is the potential difference between a phase and neutral.

- If you selected
**Enter the Voltage (V)**:- In the input field labeled
**“Voltage (V)”**, enter the voltage of your circuit. - Ensure the value is in volts (V).
- This is the voltage for your specific circuit type and configuration.

- In the input field labeled
**Enter the Current (A)**:- In the input field labeled
**“Current (A)”**, enter the current of your circuit. - Ensure the value is in amperes (A).

- In the input field labeled
**Enter the Power Factor**(for AC Circuits Only):- For both single-phase and three-phase AC circuits, locate the input field labeled
**“Power Factor”**. - Enter the power factor of your circuit, which should be a value between 0 and 1.
- The power factor is typically provided by the equipment manufacturer or can be measured using appropriate instruments.
- For DC circuits, this input is not required and will be hidden automatically.

- For both single-phase and three-phase AC circuits, locate the input field labeled
**Calculate the kW**:- Click the
**“Calculate”**button to perform the conversion. - The calculator will use the entered values to compute the power in kilowatts (kW) based on the selected circuit and voltage type.

- Click the
**View the Result**:- The calculated power in kilowatts (kW) will be displayed in the result section below the button.
- The result is formatted to three decimal places for precision.

### Additional Notes

**Power Factor**: The power factor is a measure of how effectively the electrical power is being used. It is a dimensionless number between 0 and 1. A power factor closer to 1 indicates more efficient power usage.**Voltage Types for Three-Phase Circuits**:**Line to Line Voltage**: The voltage measured between any two phases in a three-phase system.**Line to Neutral Voltage**: The voltage measured between any one phase and the neutral point in a three-phase system.

**DC Circuits**: For DC circuits, the power factor is not applicable, and the calculator simplifies the input process accordingly.
