#### Kilowatts to watts

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. One watt is the power equal to the rate of energy of one joule per second in an electrical circuit. One watt is also equal to the power produced in a circuit with a voltage potential of one volt with a current of one amp.

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.

1kW = 1000W

#### Kilowatts to watts conversion formula

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

P(W) = 1000 ⋅ P(kW)

#### Example

Convert 1.3kW to watts:

P(W) = 1000 ⋅ 1.3kW = 1300W
