The megawatt conversion selector above selects the power measurement unit to convert to starting from megawatts (MW). To make a conversion starting from a unit of power other than megawatt, simply click on the "Reset" button.
The megawatt is a unit of power equal to 1,000,000 watts (1 MW = 1,000,000 W), the derived unit of power in the International System of Units (SI).
The megawatt (MW) is also equal to 109 milliwatts (mW), or 1012 microwatts (μW), or 1,000 kilowatts (kW), or 0.001 gigawatts (GW) or 10-6 terawatts (TW).
1 MW = 1,000,000 W = 1,000,000 J/s = 1,000,000 N×m/s = 1,000,000 kg×m2/s3
In industry, the terms "megawatt electrical" (MWe) and "megawatt thermal" or "thermal megawatt" (MWt, MWth) are also used to refer to the electrical power produces and thermal power produced, respectively.
