Values used in calculations

Loading factor

Ratio between Absorbed Power and Rated Power

Load Factor
Motors between: 0kW – 15 kW0.7
Motors between: 15kW – 45 kW0.75
Motors between: 45kW – 150 kW0.83
Motors larger than 150 kW0.85

Efficiency

Percentage between Output Power and Input Power

Efficiency
Motors between: 0kW – 15 kW0.85
Motors between: 15kW – 45 kW0.89
Motors between: 45kW – 150 kW0.91
Motors larger than 150 kW0.94

Power Factor

Ratio between Active Power and Total Power

Power Factor
Motors between: 0kW – 15 kW0.75
Motors between: 15kW – 45 kW0.8
Motors between: 45kW – 150 kW0.82
Motors larger than 150 kW0.91

Calculations:

  • KW Consumed by a Motor = Absorbed Power x Efficiency x Power Factor
  • KVAR consumed by a Motor = KW x tan (cos-1(p.f))
  • KVA consumed by a motor = (KW2+ KVA2)1/2
  • Multiplication Factor for Continuous Load = 100%
  • Multiplication Factor for Intermittent Load = 50%
  • Multiplication Factor for Stand by Load = 10%
  • Max. Normal Operating Load = 100% of Continuous Load + 50% of Intermittent Load
  • Max. Peak Operating Load = 100% of Continuous Load + 50% of Intermittent Load + 10% of Standby Load or Biggest individual standby
  • Normal Operating Load with Growth Factor = 110% of Max. Normal Operating Load
  • Peak Operating Load with Growth Factor = 110% of Max. Peak Operating Load
  • Generator Size on 70% Load Factor = Peak Operating Load with Growth Factor / 70%
