### MW to kVAR calculation:

Kilo volt-ampere reactive kVAR is equal to 1000 times the real power P_{(MW)} in Mega Watts and tangent of the power angle. Hence the MW to KVAR formula can be written as,

Q_{(kVAR)} = 1000 x P_{(MW)} x tan(φ)

Or

Q_{(kVAR)} = 1000 x P_{(MW)} x tan(cos^{-1}(pf))

__Calculation:__

Let we calculate the reactive power in kVAR or the 0.75MW motor is operated as 0.85 pf.

Reactive power in kVAR= 1000 x 0.75 * tan(cos^{-1}(0.85)

= 1000 x 0.75 x 0.61974434

= 464.808255 kVAR
