## Plant Use Factor Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Plant Use Factor = Maximum Demand/Plant Capacity
Plant Factor = Max Demand/Plant Capacity
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Plant Use Factor - Plant Use Factor is defined as the ratio of actual energy produced (in kWh) in a given time period to the product of plant capacity and the number of hours the plant was in operation.
Maximum Demand - (Measured in Watt) - Maximum Demand is defined as the peak power consumption of the load connected.
Plant Capacity - (Measured in Watt) - Plant Capacity is the total capacity of the energy which is produced in the plant or can provide energy to system.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Maximum Demand: 1700 Kilowatt --> 1700000 Watt (Check conversion here)
Plant Capacity: 2875 Kilowatt --> 2875000 Watt (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Plant Factor = Max Demand/Plant Capacity --> 1700000/2875000
Evaluating ... ...
Plant Factor = 0.591304347826087
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.591304347826087 --> No Conversion Required
0.591304347826087 0.591304 <-- Plant Use Factor

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

## Plant Use Factor Formula

Plant Use Factor = Maximum Demand/Plant Capacity
Plant Factor = Max Demand/Plant Capacity

## What is Load Duration Curve?

When the various loads occurring on a system are arranged in decreasing order of their magnitudes with respect to the time period of the occurrence of these loads the graph obtained is known as a Load Duration Curve.
