# Convert 500 mgva to gva

So you want to convert 500 megavolt-amperes into gigavolt-amperes? If you're in a rush and just need the answer, the calculator below is all you need. The answer is 0.5 gigavolt-amperes.

## How to convert megavolt-amperes to gigavolt-amperes

We all use different units of measurement every day. Whether you're in a foreign country and need to convert the local imperial units to metric, or you're baking a cake and need to convert to a unit you are more familiar with.

Luckily, converting most units is very, very simple. In this case, all you need to know is that 1 mgva is equal to 0.001 gva.

Once you know what 1 mgva is in gigavolt-amperes, you can simply multiply 0.001 by the total megavolt-amperes you want to calculate.

So for our example here we have 500 megavolt-amperes. So all we do is multiply 500 by 0.001:

500 x 0.001 = 0.5

## What is the best conversion unit for 500 mgva?
