FAQ

What is Plant Capacity Factor?
The Plant Capacity Factor formula is defined as the ratio of the average demand to the installed capacity of the plant and is represented as Pcapacity=AL/I.C or Plant Capacity Factor=Average demand/Installed Capacity. The Average demand is defined as the average of loads occurring on the power station in a given period (day or month or year). It is known as average load or average demand and Installed Capacity is the intended full-load sustained output of a facility such as a power plant, electric generator, and many others. .
How to calculate Plant Capacity Factor?
The Plant Capacity Factor formula is defined as the ratio of the average demand to the installed capacity of the plant is calculated using Plant Capacity Factor=Average demand/Installed Capacity. To calculate Plant Capacity Factor, you need Average demand (AL) and Installed Capacity (I.C). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Average demand and Installed Capacity and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
