A watt (Symbol: W) is the SI (International System of Units) derived unit of power. It is defined as 1 joule per second and is used to quantify the rate of energy transfer.

A kilowatt (symbol: kw) is a unit of power in the International System of Units (SI). The base unit of the kilowatt is the watt, which was named after Scottish inventor James Watt. As is consistent with SI units, the prefix kilo- means that a kilowatt equals one thousand watts or one thousand joules per second.

Watts to kilowatts conversion formula

The power in kilowatts P(kW) is equal to the power in watts P(W) divided by 1000:

P(kW) = P(W) / 1000

Example

Convert 1300W to kilowatts:

P(kW) = 1300W / 1000 = 1.3kW
