Question: What is KVAR?
K stands for Kilo
V stands for volt
A stands for Ampere
R stands for Reactive or Reactance
How to Do a KVAR Calculation:
Here’s how you can determine the reactive power (in reactive volt amperes) of a load.
You can use a volt meter and an amp meter and use the product of their readings to determine the apparent power (in volt amperes) of the load.
You can also use a watt meter to determine the true power (in watts) of the load, then find the vectorial difference:
(reactive power)2=(apparent power)2-(true power)2
