VA - In an a.c. circuit, a measure of apparent power, given by: VA-EI, where E is the potential in volts; I is the curernt in amperes; and VA is apparent power in volt-amperes
a unit of electrical power in an AC circuit equal to the power dissipated when 1 volt produces a current of 1 ampere
The product of volts times amps. A kilovolt-ampere (kVA) is equal to one thousand volt-amperes. VA is also known as apparent power.
The basic unit of electric power; figured as the product of a systemâ€™s voltage multiplied by amperes.
The basic unit of Apparent Power; the volt-amperes of an Electric Circuit are the mathematical product of the volts and amperes measured in the Circuit.
a measurement of electrical power in an electrical circuit. In DC current, 1VA is equivalent of one 1W (watt). When used with AC current this equation is less precise, because it represents apparent power, which often differs from true power.
The unit of measurement of apparent power.
Voltage (V) multiplied by the current (ampere); apparent power. For instance, a device rated at 10 amps and 120V has a VA rating of 1200 or 1.2kVA.
A unit of apparent power in an alternating-current circuit.
