Enter the power in megawatts below to get the value converted to electric horsepower.

Results in Electric Horsepower: 1 MW = 1,340.482574 hp(E)

How to Convert Megawatts to Electric Horsepower

To convert a megawatt measurement to an electric horsepower measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One megawatt is equal to 1,340.482574 electric horsepower, so use this simple formula to convert:

electric horsepower = megawatts × 1,340.482574

The power in electric horsepower is equal to the megawatts multiplied by 1,340.482574.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megawatts to electric horsepower using the formula above.
5 MW = (5 × 1,340.482574) = 6,702.412869 hp(E)

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

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 109. Megawatts can be abbreviated as MW, for example 1 megawatt can be written as 1 MW.

Electric Horsepower

Electric horsepower is used to measure the output of electric motors and other electrical machines in the US. One electric horsepower is equal to exactly 746 watts.

The electric horsepower is a US customary and imperial unit of power. Electric horsepower can be abbreviated as hp(E), for example 1 electric horsepower can be written as 1 hp(E).
