### 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))

__Example:__

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
