How to Convert Megawatts to Microwatts

To convert a megawatt measurement to a microwatt measurement, multiply the power by the conversion ratio. One megawatt is equal to 1,000,000,000,000 microwatts, so use this simple formula to convert:

microwatts = megawatts × 1,000,000,000,000

The power in microwatts is equal to the megawatts multiplied by 1,000,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 megawatts to microwatts using the formula above.
5 MW = (5 × 1,000,000,000,000) = 5,000,000,000,000 µW

Megawatts and microwatts 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.

Microwatts

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 10-6. Microwatts can be abbreviated as µW, for example 1 microwatt can be written as 1 µW.
