How to Convert Megawatt-Hours to Watt-Seconds
To convert a measurement in megawatt-hours to a measurement in watt-seconds, multiply the energy by the following conversion ratio: 3,600,000,000 watt-seconds/megawatt-hour.
Since one megawatt-hour is equal to 3,600,000,000 watt-seconds, you can use this simple formula to convert:
watt-seconds = megawatt-hours × 3,600,000,000
The energy in watt-seconds is equal to the energy in megawatt-hours multiplied by 3,600,000,000.
How Many Watt-Seconds Are in a Megawatt-Hour?
There are 3,600,000,000 watt-seconds in a megawatt-hour, which is why we use this value in the formula above.
1 MWh = 3,600,000,000 Ws
Megawatt-hours and watt-seconds are both units used to measure energy. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What Is a Megawatt-Hour?
A megawatt-hour is a measure of electrical energy equal to one megawatt, or 1,000,000 watts, of power over a one hour period. Megawatt-hours are a measure of electrical work performed over a period of time, and are often used as a way of measuring energy usage by electric companies.
Megawatt-hours are usually abbreviated as MWh, although the formally adopted expression is MW·h. The abbreviation MW h is also sometimes used. For example, 1 megawatt-hour can be written as 1 MWh, 1 MW·h, or 1 MW h.
In formal expressions, the centered dot (·) or space is used to separate units used to indicate multiplication in an expression and to avoid conflicting prefixes being misinterpreted as a unit symbol.

What Is a Watt-Second?
Watt-seconds are usually abbreviated as Ws, although the formally adopted expression is W·s. The abbreviation W s is also sometimes used. For example, 1 watt-second can be written as 1 Ws, 1 W·s, or 1 W s.
