  • Okay, here we go. Demand factor:The word demand says it all. The net power consumed at a specific period of time for a given load divided by the amount of power that would have been consumed if the entire load would have been connected. Example: Maximum power demand at a point of time is 35 KW in your house as you are running ,but the maximum power that can be consumed at your residence if you switch on all the load will be 70 KW so the Demand factor of your house at a particular point of time when you have 35 KW load is 35/70 = 0.5. Demand factor is always less than 1. . Now Diversity factor:Diversity factor is an extended version of demand factor.It deals with maximum demand of different units at a time/Maximum demand of the entire system. Example. You and your neighbor have demands at a time as 35 KW and 42 KW ,but the maximum demand of you and your neighbor when seen individually is 70 KW Now your combined demand at a time is 77KW. If you connect all loads the maximum demand will be 70 Kw and so is for your neighbor. So Diversity factor for you and your neighbor at a time is 77/70 =1.1. Diversity factor can shoot up above 1. . Finally system loading, It's the process of supply of power and balancing of load on a system on a particular point of time. In the above 2 definitions you have seen that the system loading for you was 35 KW and that for your neighbor was 42 KW so combined load was 77 KW. System loading in other words is also known as load dispatch to the system under a safe limit. . Hope that helps.Please ask if you don't understand any point. ETW.
