Result – Volt Amp Reactive: VAR

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
