# How many homes will 1 megawatts power?

This is very dependent on the society concerned, but I guess you mean in a developed industrial society such as the US or Europe, and again whether you mean average or maximum demand per house.

Making it simple, the average demand per house is about 2 Kw, so 1 Mw will supply 500 houses. However if all those houses were cooking their Christmas (or Thanksgiving) turkeys at the same time, this could easily rise to 5 Kw per house, and more if electric heating is in use. Spare a thought for the power station staff keeping it all going!

### How many homes will 1 megawatts power per day?

It depends on the country and the area. In the UK it would power 200-300 houses, every day.

### How you can calculate tph to megawatt?

To calculate tph to megawatts you need to know how many tph are in one megawatts. The equation is 1 mw is equal to 4 tph.

### How many watts are there in 1660 megawatts?

### What are the units for Nuclear Power?

The fundamental unit for all types of energy is the Joule, and this is related to power as 1 Watt = 1 Joule/sec. Output power of a nuclear reactor is measured in Watts, or for large power reactors in MegaWatts, and would typically be around 3000 MW. That is the thermal output of the reactor, when coupled to a Rankine cycle steam/generating plant this would produce about 1000 MW electrical.

### One megawatts is how many units?

1 MW = 1 000 kW = 1 000 000 W = 1 000 000 J / s = 1 000 000 V*A... What units are you looking for? The standard unit for Power is W. The power company will charge you for kW/h. (kW per hour) MW = Megawatt kW = Kilowatt J / s = Joules per second kW/h = Kilowatts per hour V*A = Volts "times" Amps

### Are homes powered with 1 phase or three phase ac?

Homes are generally supplied with single-phase mains power electricity. See the answers to the Related Questions shown below for more information.

### How much can a solar panel power?

That depends entirely upon the size of the solar panel and how many cells it has. Panels can be small enough to fit on and power a pocket calculator, generating less than 1 volt, or they can be very large, such as those you might find on a residential rooftop for supplying 110 volt power for the home's needs. Or, they can be absolutely massive, generating megawatts of power, such as the ones used for… Read More

### Power factor correction capacitors?

Yes, they exist. Capacitors are often used to change a low power factor (such as 0.5) to a higher power factor near unity (1). In some instances, this will lower fees and costs to utilities. In homes, this is not really necessary as most devices used in homes are near unity power factor, or tend to be minor/sporadic loads (such as a washing machine).

### What does giga means in terms of power?

The prefix "giga" is used in SI (Metric) and some other units to mean "one billion" (109). The corresponding prefixes are kilo for one thousand and mega for one million. 1 gigavolt = 1 billion volts 1 gigawatt = 1 billion watts (1000 megawatts)

### How many megawatts are in a kilowatt?

0.001 or .001 or 1/1,000th or one one thousandth or a thousandth. A megawatt is 1,000,000 watts or one million watts. A kilowatt is 1,000 watts or one thousand watts.
