## Utilisation Factor of Plant Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Utilisation Factor = Maximum Demand/Plant Capacity
UF = Max Demand/Plant Capacity
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Utilisation Factor - Utilisation Factor is the ratio of the actual output from a solar plant over the year to the maximum possible output from it for a year under ideal conditions.
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
UF = Max Demand/Plant Capacity --> 1700000/2875000
Evaluating ... ...
UF = 0.591304347826087
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.591304347826087 --> No Conversion Required
0.591304347826087 0.591304 <-- Utilisation Factor

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

## Utilisation Factor of Plant Formula

Utilisation Factor = Maximum Demand/Plant Capacity
UF = Max Demand/Plant Capacity

## What is responsibility factor?

Responsibility factor is often used in guiding demand side management. Utilities often get charged for its contribution to the peak of independent system operator. To avoid a high charge, a utility has to reduce the responsibility factor. This can be done by implementing various programs that help shift the peak. Similarly, responsibility factor is also used in rate making. A customer with high peak demand may not get high demand charge if the peak occurs during off-peak period of the utility system load.

## How to Calculate Utilisation Factor of Plant?

Utilisation Factor of Plant calculator uses Utilisation Factor = Maximum Demand/Plant Capacity to calculate the Utilisation Factor, The Utilisation Factor of Plant formula is defined as the ratio of the actual output from a solar plant over the year to the maximum possible output from it for a year under ideal conditions. Utilisation Factor is denoted by UF symbol.
