# MWh for one day expressed in MW

I have read the other question on this topic, but having gone through the answer I'm still unsure about the answer to my own, so I hope this is helpful.

If a generator generated 20MWh of electricity in a day (24 hours), then how would I express that in MW?

I want to say the generator was running at XX MW on that particular day. But how would I work out XX if I only had MWhs for the day?

Would I simply divide by 24 (hours in day)?

• Units tend to follow the same logic as the equations used to get them. Thus you can regard MWh as MW * h. Simply divide by 24. May 21, 2021 at 11:39
