# Convert 1000 kva to gva

So you want to convert 1000 kilovolt-amperes into gigavolt-amperes? If you're in a rush and just need the answer, the calculator below is all you need. The answer is 0.001 gigavolt-amperes.

## How to convert kilovolt-amperes to gigavolt-amperes

We all use different units of measurement every day. Whether you're in a foreign country and need to convert the local imperial units to metric, or you're baking a cake and need to convert to a unit you are more familiar with.

Luckily, converting most units is very, very simple. In this case, all you need to know is that 1 kva is equal to 1.0E-6 gva.

Once you know what 1 kva is in gigavolt-amperes, you can simply multiply 1.0E-6 by the total kilovolt-amperes you want to calculate.

So for our example here we have 1000 kilovolt-amperes. So all we do is multiply 1000 by 1.0E-6:

1000 x 1.0E-6 = 0.001

## What is the best conversion unit for 1000 kva?

As an added little bonus conversion for you, we can also calculate the best unit of measurement for 1000 kva.

What is the "best" unit of measurement? To keep it simple, let's say that the best unit of measure is the one that is the lowest possible without going below 1. The reason for this is that the lowest number generally makes it easier to understand the measurement.

For 1000 kva the best unit of measurement is megavolt-amperes, and the amount is 1 mgva.
