Both kilowatts (kW) and MW are units of power.
While a kilowatt represents 1000 watts, megawatts represent 1,000,000 watts.
Formula to convert kW to MW.
To convert kW to MW, we need to know how they are related first.
Their relationship is that 1 megawatt is equivalent to 1000 kilowatts.
Therefore, to convert kW to MW, we divide the kW value by 1,000.
Power in MW = Power in kW ÷ 1000
Convert 50,000 kilowatts to megawatts.
= 50,000 ÷ 1000
= 50 megawatts.
