Spanish term or phrase: GWH,MW, KV, CC, CA
ELECTRICITY SUPPLY
Keith Absalom
English translation:Please see below:
Explanation:
GWH - Gigawatt-hours (?)(Billions of watts);(Note: this sounds like a tremendous power rating; I think the "H" belongs on your next acronym - MWH)
MW - Megawatt (Millions of watts)
KV - Kilovolt (Thousands of volts)
DC - Direct Current (Sp. "CC")
AC - Alternating Current (Sp. "CA")

Explanation:
GWH = GWh = gigawatt hour (one billion watt-hours. A huge amount of power, indeed. Most plants that produce this amount of electricity are rated in the hundreds of GWh, usually from 300 to 800). Note that in English, the "h" is not capitalized

MW = MW = megawatt, or one million watts. Here, the "M" must be capitalized, because "mW' = "milliwatt" (one one-thousandth of a single watt). As with GWh, the "h" in "MWh" (megawatt hour) is not capitalized.

KV = kV = kilovolt (one thousand volts). Lower-case "k" is correct in English.

CC = "corriente continua" = direct current = DC electricity

CA = "corriente alterna" = alternating current = AC electricity

Hope this helps! -- HC

Explanation:
GWH: GigaWatt/Hour: Giga=thousand millions("billion", in U.S.,"millardo" in Spain)
MW: MegaWatt: Mega= 1 million (1,000,000).
KV: KiloVoltio: Kilo= 1000.
CC: Corriente Continua ( English:DC).
CA: Corriente Alterna ( " :AC).
Luck!
