## How to Convert Mechanical Horsepower to Megawatts Using an Easy Conversion Formula

Convert mechanical horsepower to megawatts with this simple formula:

megawatts = mechanical horsepower × 0.000746

Converting a mechanical horsepower power measurement to a megawatt measurement involves multiplying your power by the conversion ratio to find the result. A mechanical horsepower is equal to 0.000746 megawatts, so to convert simply multiply by 0.000746.

For example:
5 hp(I) = (5 × 0.000746) = 0.003728 MW

Mechanical horsepower and megawatts are both units used to measure power. Learn more about power and find more power measurement conversion calculators. A mechanical horsepower is a power measurement and can be abbreviated as hp(I), for example 1 hp(I). A megawatt is a power measurement and can be abbreviated as MW, for example 1 MW.

Mechanical horsepower is often used to measure the output of engines and motors in North America and is equal to 745.69987158227022 watts, or joules per second. Electric horsepower is used to measure the output of electric motors and other electrical machines, and is equal to exactly 746 watts.
