#### Megawatts to watts

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

One watt is the power equal to the rate of energy of one joule per second in an electrical circuit. One watt is also equal to the power produced in a circuit with a voltage potential of one volt with a current of one amp.

The watt is the SI derived unit for power in the metric system. Watts can be abbreviated as W; for example, 1 watt can be written as 1 W.

#### How to convert megawatts to watts

1MW = 1000000W

1W = 0.000001MW

Megawatts to watts conversion formula

The power in watts P(W) is equal to 1000000 times the power in megawatts P(MW):

P(W) = 1000000 × P(MW)

#### Example

Convert 3MW to watts:

P(W) = 1000000 × 3MW = 3000000W
