The megawatt conversion selector 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.

## About megawatt

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 10^{9} milliwatts (mW), or 10^{12} 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×m^{2}/s^{3}

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.
