## What does coincident demand mean?

Table of Contents

Coincident Demand is the energy demand of a consumer of electricity at the time of a power supplier’s peak system demand.

**How is coincident factor calculated?**

Coincidence factor = Maximum demand / Sum of individual maximum demands.

### How is coincident factor different from diversity factor?

The highest possible coincidence factor is 1, when all of the individual components are peaking at the same time. Diversity factor is sum of peak loads of all the components in a system divided by peak of the entire system. It is the reciprocal of coincidence factor.

**What is coincidence factor in power system?**

Coincidence factor is the fraction of the peak demand of a population that is in operation at the time of system peak. Thus, it is the ratio of the population’s demand at the time of the system peak to its non-coincident peak demand.

#### What is diversity factor in electrical load?

‘The diversity factor is the ratio of the sum of the individual maximum demands of the various subdivisions of a system to the maximum demand of the whole system. ‘ Loads do not normally all peak at the same time.

**What does coincident peak mean?**

Coincident peak is your facility’s demand during the time when electricity demand systemwide is the highest.

## How do you calculate demand factor?

(1) Demand factor

- Demand Factor = Maximum demand of a system / Total connected load on the system.
- Demand factor is always less than one.
- Example: if a residence having 6000W equipment connected has a maximum demand of 300W,Than demand factor = 6000W / 3300W = 55%.

**What is non coincident demand?**

Non-coincident: This applies to the highest kW demand peak in any 15-minute interval in the billing month, or 50% of the highest peak in the last 11 months.

### What is meant by load factor and diversity factor?

In the context of electricity, the diversity factor is the ratio of the sum of the individual non-coincident maximum loads of various subdivisions of the system to the maximum demand of the complete system. The diversity factor is always greater than 1. The aggregate load.

**What is diversified demand?**

Diversified demand a. Sum of demands imposed by a group of loads over a particular period.

#### What is meant by diversity factor?

Diversity factor: It is the ratio of the sum of the individual maximum demands of the various subdivisions of a system (or part of a system) to the maximum demand of the whole system (or part of the system) under consideration.

**What is contribution factor in EDS?**

Contribution factor: It is the contribution of a particular load, in per unit of the individual demand, to the group maximum demand. 8. Loss factor: It is the ratio of average power loss to power loss at peak load.

## What is coincidence factor in economics?

The coincidence factor is the ratio of the maximum demand of a system, or part under consideration, to the sum of the individual maximum demands of the subdivisions Expressed as a percentage (%) or a ratio less than 1.

**What is the difference between the coincidence factor and load factor?**

Load factor indicates how efficiently the customer is using peak demand. Motor of 20 hp drives a constant 15 hp load whenever it is on. The motor load factor is then 15/20 = 75%. The coincidence factor is the ratio of the maximum demand of a system, or part under consideration, to the sum of the individual maximum demands of the subdivisions

### What is the highest coincidence factor and diversity factor?

The highest possible coincidence factor is 1, when all of the individual components are peaking at the same time. Diversity factor is sum of peak loads of all the components in a system divided by peak of the entire system.

**What are the on-peak coincidence factors for the large and small C&I sector?**

Table i – 19 and Table i – 20 provides the Summer and Winter On-Peak Coincidence Factors (CFs) for the Large and Small C&I sectors. For the Summer, the Large C&I has the higher On-Peak CF of about 0. 74, while the Small C&I had a Summer On-Peak CF of 0. 66.
