When calculating power draw using readings from my amp meter (standard ideal clamp meter), I multiply the amp reading by the known voltage. I am really calculating KW, not KVA, right? I would need a meter capable of reading power factor, to see if current is leading/lagging voltage, in order to truly know KVA, if I'm not mistaken. I am preparing a load summary for a customer, and just want to make sure that I can call what I am reading "KW", and not "KVA". Any help is appreciated!
