## How to Convert Kilowatts to Microwatts

To convert a measurement in kilowatts to a measurement in microwatts, multiply the power by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000,000 microwatts/kilowatt.

Since one kilowatt is equal to 1,000,000,000 microwatts, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The power in microwatts is equal to the power in kilowatts multiplied by 1,000,000,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 kilowatts to microwatts using the formula above.

### How Many Microwatts Are in a Kilowatt?

There are **1,000,000,000** microwatts in a kilowatt, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 kW = 1,000,000,000 µW

Kilowatts and microwatts are both units used to measure power. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## What is a Kilowatt?

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

The kilowatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 10^{3}. Kilowatts can be abbreviated as *kW*; for example, 1 kilowatt can be written as 1 kW.

## What is a Microwatt?

One microwatt is the power equal to 1/1,000,000 of a watt, or the energy consumption at a rate of 1/1,000,000 of a joule per second.

The microwatt is a multiple of the watt, which is the SI derived unit for power. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for millionths, or 10^{-6}. Microwatts can be abbreviated as *µW*; for example, 1 microwatt can be written as 1 µW.
