Unit kA
Name kiloampere
Category Electric Current
Details In the field of electric current, the unit kA (kiloampere) is a unit of measurement for electric current. It is equal to 1,000 amperes (A), where an ampere (A) is the base unit of electric current in the International System of Units (SI). The kiloampere is used to express larger magnitudes of current, especially in applications dealing with high power systems, electrical distribution, and high voltage transmission lines. It is commonly used in industries where large currents are needed or processed, such as in power plants and electric utility systems.
