Get all site collections in Web Application using PowerShell

As an Administrator, there might be a need to view all the site collections under a web-application in SharePoint. We can get a list of site collections in a particular web application using the Powershell cmdlet Get-SPSite.

Before proceed, run the following command to add SharePoint PowerShell management snapin.
Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell
The following PowerShell script find and list all site collections details in a given web application. You have to change the $url value with your own webapplication url.
$url ='http://sharepoint_server:90/'
$Site= Get-SPSite $url         
$spWebApp = $Site.WebApplication
#Enumerate all site collections from webapplication
$spWebApp.Sites | Select-Object @{n="Name"; e={$_.RootWeb.Title}},Url,ContentDatabase | FL
You can also export the site collection details to csv file by using the powershell cmdlet Export-CSV.
$url ='http://sharepoint_server:90/'
$Site= Get-SPSite $url         
$spWebApp = $Site.WebApplication
#Enumerate site collections list from webapplication
$spWebApp.Sites | ForEach-Object {
 New-Object -TypeName PSObject -Property @{
             Name = $_.RootWeb.Title
             Url = $_.Url
             WebApplication= $web.Name
             Database = $_.ContentDatabase 
}} | Export-CSV "C:\\SiteCollections.csv" -NoTypeInformation -Encoding UTF8
