I'm in the process of trying to build a small hobby farm from scratch. One of the initial steps is to get temp service on the property, and to do so I have to fill out an electric load form. I will mostly be operating pumps, table saws, etc. Single phase, and most of the time not at the same time. Part of the sheet requires you to fill in the KVA and the KW of the different electric loads. I've done a fail amount of electrical work, but honestly these are metrics that I'm not familiar with. Can someone provide a little guidance on how one would fill this out? I vaguely recall from engineering school that the difference between KVA and KW is one is absolute and one is apparent power, but what that means within this context I'm not sure.
Thanks for the help
