You would have to know the Power Factor, normally designated PF. MVA x PF = MW.

If the PF is unity then MVA = MW. A PF of UNITY suggest the load is purely resistive with neither capacitive nor inductive components in the load or source. Of course this can mean such components have been balanced artificially.

What does mva mean in electrical terms?

MVA is the apparent power. MVA=( MW+ MVAr)1/2


A transmission line has 30 megawatts and 40 megavars what is the megavolt amps load on the line?

By definition, MVA is equivalent to the vector sum of MW and MVAR: MVA^2 = MW^2 + MVAR^2 = 2500 MVA = 50

A transmission line has 30 mw and 40 mvar flowing what is the mva flow on the circuit?

MVA= square root of (MW2 + MVAR2 )


How many mega volt ampere are there in a 1 mega watt generator?

MVA(Mega volt ampere) is the cos component of MW. So one should know the power factor of the system for conversion from MVA to MW.


What does mva stand for in the turbo generator field?

There are two concerns here regarding loading on transformers of this size. First is the difference between MVA and MW. MW is just real power -- watts. MVA is total power which includes real power (MW) and reactive power (MVAR).--- http://en.allexperts.com/q/Electric-Power-Utilities-2405/operation-limit-oof-power.htm


How is a 100 MVA transformer cooled?

Large transformers are filled with oil which circulates to a radiator to get rid of excess heat. A 100 MVA transformer should waste about 1 MW of power on full load, 0.5 MW on no load.


How do you calculate MVAR with mw and mva?

mw/mva=power factor reactive power(Q)=I2XL or E2/XL where XL= REACTANCE apparent power = square root of (MW2 + MVAR2 )

Why DAM capacity in MW and generator in MVA?

Easy, you don't sell MVAh, you sell MWh. MVA is used in rating generators because it combines Watts and vars. MW is used to let you know what kind of money you can make, since you also are probably wanting to produce vars in order to support your grid.


How transformer converts mva to kv?

Transformer does not convert MVA to KV. MVA is unit of power, where as KV is unit of Voltage. Transformer converts voltgae. Step up or Step down.


How do you convert db to mw?

To convert from dB (decibels) to mW (milliwatts), you can use the formula: mW = 10^(dB/10). Simply take the dB value and divide it by 10, then raise 10 to that power to get the mW value. For example, if you have 20 dB, the calculation would be mW = 10^(20/10) = 100 mW.
