[Value of GW h] = [Value of µW h] / 1.0E+15
GW h(gigawatt hour)
In the field of energy, GW h (gigawatt hour) is a unit of energy that represents the amount of power generated or consumed over time. It is a combination of power (gigawatts) and time (hours).
A gigawatt (GW) is a unit of power equal to one billion (10^9) watts, where a watt is a unit of power defined as one joule per second. The gigawatt hour (GW h) is a derived unit that combines power and time, measuring how much energy is generated or consumed over an hour at a rate of one gigawatt.
To put it in context, a power plant with a capacity of 1 GW generates 1 GW h of energy if it operates continuously at full capacity for one hour. The GW h unit is commonly used to quantify large-scale energy production, consumption, and storage, such as in the case of power plants, electric grid management, or even energy consumption by countries or large industries.
µW h(microwatt hour)
A microwatt hour (µWh) is a unit of energy used to express small amounts of energy consumption or generation, especially in the context of low-power electronic devices or systems. It is a derived unit from the International System of Units (SI) and falls under the category of energy, work, or amount of heat.
The microwatt hour (µWh) represents one millionth (10^-6) of a watt-hour (Wh), which is a widely recognized energy unit. A watt-hour is the amount of energy consumed or generated by a one-watt device operating for one hour. Therefore, one microwatt hour is equivalent to a one-microwatt (µW) device operating for one hour or using one millionth of a watt's worth of energy for one hour.
This unit of measurement is often used in various applications such as analyzing the energy consumption of electronic components like integrated circuits, sensors, and other low-power devices that operate in the microwatt range.
