Enter the voltage and current into the calculator to determine the power in megawatts. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Volts To Megawatts Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the power in megawatts from voltage.

P(MW) = V(V) * I(A) / 1,000,000


  • P(MW) is the power in megawatts (MW)
  • V(V) is the voltage in volts (V)
  • I(A) is the current in amperes (A)

To calculate the power in megawatts, multiply the voltage in volts by the current in amperes. Then, divide the result by 1,000,000 to convert the power from watts to megawatts.

What is Volts To Megawatts?

Volts to Megawatts is a conversion process used in electrical engineering to convert the amount of electrical potential (volts) into the amount of power (megawatts). This conversion is important in understanding and calculating the power output or consumption of large electrical systems or power plants. The conversion involves the use of Ohm’s law and the power equation, and it requires knowledge of the system’s current or resistance.
