Kilowatts (kW) and milliwatts (mW) are units of power used to measure the rate at which work is done or energy is transferred. However, they differ in magnitude:

## Kilowatts (kW)

- Kilowatt is a unit of power in the International System of Units (SI).
- 1 kilowatt (kW) is equal to 1,000 watts. It represents the power required to perform 1,000 joules of work in one second.
- Kilowatts are commonly used to describe the power output of electrical devices, motors, engines, and larger-scale energy generation and consumption.

## Milliwatts (mW)

- Milliwatt is also a unit of power in the International System of Units (SI).
- 1 milliwatt (mW) is equal to 0.001 watt or 1/1,000 of a watt. It represents a smaller unit of power.
- Milliwatts are often used to describe low-power electronic devices, such as some sensors, small light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and low-power transmitters.

### How to convert kW to mW

To convert kilowatts (kW) to milliwatts (mW), you can use the following conversion factor:

1 kilowatt (kW) = 1,000,000 milliwatts (mW)

So, to convert from kilowatts to milliwatts:

**P _{(mW)} = 1000000 × P_{(kW)}**

For example – Convert 100 mw to kw

Ans. P_{(mW)} = 1000000 × 100kW = 100000000mW

## FAQs on kW to mW conversion

### How many kWh is 1 MW?

One megawatt (MW) of power, operating for one hour, is equal to 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh).

### Is 100 kW 1 MW?

No, 100 kW is not equal to 1 MW. One megawatt (MW) is equal to 1,000 kilowatts (kW). So, 1 MW is 10 times larger than 100 kW.

### How do you convert kWh to MW?

To convert kilowatt-hours (kWh) to megawatts (MW), you need to divide the energy in kilowatt-hours by 1,000. Mathematically: 1 kWh = 0.001 MW OR kWh ÷ 1,000 = MW

### What is the difference between kW to MW?

The difference between kilowatts (kW) and megawatts (MW) lies in their magnitude. One megawatt (MW) is equal to 1,000 kilowatts (kW). So, a megawatt is a larger unit of power compared to a kilowatt.

### How much is 1 MW of power?

One megawatt (MW) of power is equal to 1,000 kilowatts (kW) or 1,000,000 watts (W). It represents a significant amount of electrical power, often used for larger-scale operations like industrial facilities, power plants, or data centers.

## How many units is 1 MW?

In the context of electricity billing, a unit is equivalent to one kilowatt-hour (kWh). So, 1 MW of power used for one hour will consume 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh), which is 1,000 units of electricity.
