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:

microwatts = kilowatts × 1,000,000,000

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.
microwatts = (5 kW × 1,000,000,000) = 5,000,000,000 µW

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

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 103. 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.
