What does KV stand for?

Most of us don’t know anything about electricity apart from the fact that it lights whenever we press the switch and turns off by also pressing the switch. Now, please allow me to you a little bit more about kilovolt, or KV as it is popularly known in the electrical engineering world. As I have mentioned, KV stands for kilovolt, which is a derived unit for electric potential, electric potential difference (or in other words, voltage) and the electromotive force. In other terms, one kilovolt is defined as the electrical potential difference between two points of a conducting wire when an electric current of one of the ampere dissipates one watt of power between these particular points.

What does KV stand for?

Please don’t confuse kilovolt with watts. They may seem to be representing the the same thing but the truth is that they are not. You see, ‘watt’ is a unit of power, whereas a kilovolt is a unit of energy. Watts is usually abbreviated as kW, whereas kilovolt is abbreviated as KV. But if you are confused between the two, just note that the most basic difference between the two is that kW is a unit of active power or real power in which the power factor is taken into consideration while KV is a unit of apparent power in which the power factor is not taken into consideration.
