How to Convert Electric Horsepower to Megawatts

To convert a electric horsepower measurement to a megawatt measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One electric horsepower is equal to 0.000746 megawatts, so use this simple formula to convert:

megawatts = electric horsepower × 0.000746

The power in megawatts is equal to the electric horsepower multiplied by 0.000746.

For example, here's how to convert 5 electric horsepower to megawatts using the formula above.
5 hp(E) = (5 × 0.000746) = 0.00373 MW

Electric horsepower and megawatts are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Electric Horsepower

Electric horsepower is used to measure the output of electric motors and other electrical machines in the US. One electric horsepower is equal to exactly 746 watts.

The electric horsepower is a US customary and imperial unit of power. Electric horsepower can be abbreviated as hp(E), for example 1 electric horsepower can be written as 1 hp(E).

Megawatts

One megawatt is the power equal to 1,000,000 watts, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1,000,000 joules per second.

The megawatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 109. Megawatts can be abbreviated as MW, for example 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.
