## How to Convert Mechanical Horsepower to Megawatts

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

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

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 mechanical horsepower to megawatts using the formula above.

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

## Mechanical Horsepower

Mechanical horsepower is often used to measure the output of engines and motors in North America. One mechanical horsepower is equal to 745.69987158227022 watts.

The mechanical horsepower is a US customary and imperial unit of power. Mechanical horsepower can be abbreviated as *hp(I)*, for example 1 mechanical horsepower can be written as 1 hp(I).

## 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 10^{9}. Megawatts can be abbreviated as *MW*, for example 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.
