## How is coincident peak calculated?

This is defined by the formula y=mx+b. The concept is similar in electricity demand – your peak demand ‘coincidentally’ occurring at the same time of the utility’s peak demand. In other words, Coincident Peak is defined by the demand of a facility during the interval that the electricity system peaks.

## What are demand savings?

Demand Savings means a quantifiable reduction in the rate at which energy is delivered to or by a system at a given instance, or average over a designated period, usually expressed in kilowatts (kW) or megawatts (MW).

**What is coincident peak?**

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

### What is coincidence factor in electrical?

the ratio, expressed as a numerical value or as a percentage, of the simultaneous maximum demand of a group of electrical appliances or consumers within a specified period, to the sum of their individual] maximum demands within the same period.

### How do you convert kW demand to kWh?

How Do You Calculate kWh vs. kW?

- Divide the wattage by 1,000 to calculate kW: 1500 watts 1,000 = 1.5 kW.
- Multiply the kilowatts by the hours of daily use: 1.5 kW X 2 hours = 3 kWh per day.
- Find the total energy usage for a month (30 days): 3 kWh X 30 days = 90 kWh per month.

**How do you calculate maximum peak demand from kWh?**

- Divide the value you measure (or less accurately calculate) for kW demand, the highest power usage usually over a 15 minute or 30 minute period, by the total kWhr consumed in the typical billing period, usually a month.
- For example, you consume 10,000 kWhr over a 30 day period, or 333kWhr per day.

## 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 is ercot 4CP?

In ERCOT, this is known as 4CP (or 4 Critical Peaks). 4CP is the average of an individual customer’s peaks during the highest grid peak hours for each of the four summer months. • If you consume less power during these hours, you can significantly cut your total electric bill for the coming year.

**How do you calculate coincidence factor?**

The coincidence factor =Max. demand of a system / sum of the individual maximum demands

- The coincidence factor =Max. demand of a system / sum of the individual maximum demands.
- The coincidence factor is the reciprocal of the diversity factor.

### 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 difference between kW and kWh?

The difference between kWh and kW, and what you see on your bill, is that kW reflects the rate of electricity you use, and kWh indicates the amount of electricity you use.

**How is kW demand calculated?**

Demand charges are calculated using the single highest 15-minute interval of power consumption over the billing cycle multiplied by the current per kW rate. As a point of reference, the average United Power residential demand is 7 kW.
