## < 15 Power Plant Operational Factors Calculators

Wind Power
Wind Power = 0.5*Plant Efficiency*Air Density*Blade Area*Wind Speed^3
Utilisation Factor of Plant
Utilisation Factor = Maximum Demand/Plant Capacity
Unit Generated per Annum
Units Generated = Maximum Demand*Load Factor*8760
Diversity Factor
Diversity Factor = Combined Demand/Maximum Demand
Plant Use Factor
Plant Use Factor = Maximum Demand/Plant Capacity
Reserve Capacity
Reserve Capacity = Plant Capacity-Maximum Demand
Plant Capacity Factor
Capacity Factor = Average Demand/Plant Capacity
Maximum Demand using Demand Factor
Maximum Demand = Demand Factor*Connected Load
Demand Factor
Demand Factor = Maximum Demand/Connected Load
Operation Factor
Operation Factor = Working Time/Total Time
Coincidence Factor
Coincidence Factor = 1/Diversity Factor

## What is the average load?

It is defined as the average of all loads that occur on a power station for a given period of time. Mathematically Average load formula can be linked by the following relation: Average load (AL) = No of units generated/time Interval (in hours).
