Abstract

This paper begins with a brief review of maximum demand. Then, appropriate applications of demand factors are described, as well as, recommended methods for their calculation, based upon usage. This will include an examination of the thermal characteristics of transformers, motors, and cables so that a partial relationship may be found between demand and electrical component temperature rise. Finally, this paper is concluded with a description of the data collection activities and necessary calculations to arrive at meaningful demand factors for an American retreating longwall system.
