STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Load Factor - Load Factor is the ratio of average load to the maximum demand during a given period.
Average Load - (Measured in Watt) - Average Load is the average load occurring on the power station in a given period known as an average load.
Maximum Demand - (Measured in Watt) - Maximum Demand is defined as the peak power consumption of the load connected.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Average Load: 1105 Kilowatt --> 1105000 Watt (Check conversion here)
Maximum Demand: 1700 Kilowatt --> 1700000 Watt (Check conversion here)

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

In electrical engineering, the load factor is defined as the average load divided by the peak load in a specified time period. It is a measure of the utilization rate or efficiency of electrical energy usage; a high load factor indicates that load is using the electric system more efficiently, whereas consumers or generators that underutilize the electric distribution will have a low load factor.
