Mw To Kwh
Question asked by Rhonda:
How do I convert megawatts to kwh? Is there a conversion formula for this?
KWh And MW
posted by Michael:kW h (Kilowatt Hour) is a unit of ENERGY, which means energy used in an hour. MW (megawatt) is a unit of POWER, which is energy per unit of time.
- A unit for kW h is kilo joules.
- A unit for kW is kilo joules/sec.
The Missing Link
posted by Psudo:If you're looking to convert from kWh to MW or visa-versa, the confusing bit is that you are assuming average or consistent energy consumption over time. You have to make that assumption explicit before the formula makes any sense.
1 MW * 1 h = 1,000 kWh
1,000 kWh/yr = 114.077116 W
