We denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise. except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure. But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system. quis nostrum exercitationem ullam corporis suscipit laboriosam, nisi ut aliquid ex ea commodi consequatur?

When hiring a generator, you will probably be met with the question of “What size do you need?” Generator size is measured in kilovolt-amperes (kVA), but as kVA isn’t a widely known term outside of the generator industry, it can be confusing to identify which size you require.

You may, however, know how much power you need in kilowatts (kW). So what’s the difference between kW and kVA, and how do you convert between the two?


kW is the amount of ‘actual power’ an electrical system has. This shows you how much power is being converted into useful, working output.

kVA, on the other hand is the measure of ‘apparent’ power. If kW is how much power you can work with, kVA tells you how much is being used in the system overall.

If the efficiency of an electrical system is perfect, then kW would be equal to kVA. But because no system is completely efficient, not all of the apparent power will be converted into useful output.

Converting KW To KVA

To convert kW to kVA, you first need to know the efficiency (or power factor) of the system. Power factor (pf) is measured on a scale from 0 to 1.

On average, a generator will have a power factor of 0.8.

The formula for converting kW to kVA is: kW / pf = kVA e.g. 200 kW / 0.8 pf = 250 kVA

The formula for converting kVA to kW is: kVA x pf = kW e.g. 250 kVA x 0.8 pf = 200 kW

While it can be helpful to have a good idea of the generator size you need, don’t worry if you’re unsure, or you don’t feel confident converting between kW and kVA yourself.

If you hire one of our generators, your local sales engineer will be able to help you identify the most suitable equipment for your project.

They will take the time to get to know your job and discuss exactly what you will be powering and for how long. From there, they can advise on the most suitable generator size, fuel tank and other ancillary items.

Generator Power are a specialist supplier with over 20 years’ experience in the hire and sale of diesel generators. We have one of the largest fleets in the UK, with fuel efficient Atlas Copco generators ranging from 20kVA to 1250kVA.
