Megawatts to kW conversion

Megawatts to kilowatts Converter

Result in kilowatts: kW

MW to kW Conversion

It is a conversion calculator that is used to convert the power in megawatts (MW) to Kilowatts (kW). It has a single text field and two controls. Enter the value in megawatts in the blank text field if you want to perform a new conversion, and then click the ‘Convert' button. It will initiate the conversion from megawatts to kilowatts and the result in kilowatts will be displayed instantly below the two controls.

The ‘Reset' button is another control that executes a different function of the calculator. It erases all data of the previous calculations from the converter. You can always use it whenever you are performing new conversions.

For example;

Convert 0.5 megawatts to Kilowatts


The first step is to enter the value in megawatts (0.5) in the blank text field. Afterward, initiate the conversion by clicking the ‘Convert' button. The result in kilowatts will be displayed as; 500 kW

Use the same procedure when you want to perform another conversion with a different value. The ‘Reset' button is the fastest way of readjusting the calculator and it enhances its efficiency when carrying out a number of conversions. 

Formula of converting megawatts to kilowatts

P (kW) = P (MW) x 1000. Where, the power in kilowatts is calculated by multiplying the power in megawatts by one thousand.


1 MW = 1000 kW. This means that one milliwatt is equivalent to a thousand kilowatts

Using the above example;

Convert 0.05 megawatts to Kilowatts

The calculation can be expressed as;

P (kW) = 0.05 MW x 1000

= 500 kW

This implies that 0.05 megawatts are equivalent to 500 kilowatts.

The megawatts to kilowatts conversion calculator gives accurate results depending on the input values. You can also use the MW to kW conversion table to determine the common conversions of megawatts to kilowatts based on a scale of 0MW to 1000 MW.
