MW to VAR Calculator:
Enter the MW and pf (0 to 1) to get the VAR values.
MW to VAR Calculation:
VAR is equal to the 1000000 times of the real power P(MW) in Mega Watts and the tangent of the cosine inverse of the power factor (pf). Hence for calculating MW to VAR we can use the below formula,
Q(VAR) = 1000000 x P(MW) * tan (cos-1(pf))
Calculate the reactive power in VAR of the 1MW motor is running at 0.96 pf.
VAR = 1000000 x 1 x tan (cos-1(0.96))
VAR = 1000000 x 0.29166667
Reactive power in VAR = 291666.7 Volt amp reactive
