The amount of power necessary to supply customers at the point of maximum demand.
The maximum level of demand for electrical service in a building during a given interval (usually fifteen to sixty minutes).
The maximum momentary load placed on a water or wastewater plant or pumping station or on an electric generating plant or system. This is usually the maximum average load in one hour or less, but may be specified as instantaneous or for some other short time period.
The time period during which customers demand the greatest quantity. ( 0301)
The peak demand is how much water the pump must deliver in gallons per minute to meet the greatest needs during the day.
PEAK DEMAND is the maximum amount of electricity necessary to supply customers. Peak periods fluctuate by season. Peak demand generally occurs in the morning during the winter and in the afternoon during the summer.
The highest 15- or 30-minute demand recorded during a 12-month period.
The maximum demand on an electric system in a designated period of time (e.g. over a year, a month or a season).
The maximum level of use by customers of a system during a specified period of time; may apply to a class of customers only or the entire company, depending on the intended use of the data.
The maximum electric load at a specified point in time
The greatest simultaneous electric demand of all utility consumers within a defined period, normally the highest 30-minute period of a 30-day billing period.
or Peak Load - see â€œCapacityâ€ and â€œCapacity Charge
The maximum amount of gas, water, or electricity consumed by a utility's customers during a specific time period (such as a day, month or year).
The maximum amount of electrical power produced-or used by-a system during a specified time period.
The maximum load during a specified period of high demand.
A utility customer's maximum load. For purposes of calculating utility cost, peak demand is generally based on the maximum monthly demand, where demand is measured as an average over a time interval, usually 15 or 30 minutes.
The maximum amount of energy (natural gas, etc.) delivered during a stated period of time.
The maximum load during a specified period of time.
The maximum load during a specific amount of time.
The maximum amount of electricity required to supply customers.
The greatest electric demand reading during a specified period. Typically, an electric utility charges for the greatest monthly demand measured in 15-minute intervals. The unit of demand is the kilowatt (kW).
The maximum integrated demand during a time period.
A one hour period in a year representing the highest point of customer consumption of electricity.
The greatest demand placed on an electric system; also the time of day or season of the year when that demand occurs.
The point at which demand for electricity reaches its highest level.
Maximum power used in a given period of time.
In electricity, the maximum demand occurring during a specified period of time. It may be an instantaneous value or the average for a defined short time interval as indicated by a prefix (e.g., 20 Minute Peak Demand). Also known as peak load.
The maximum load consumed by a customer or a group of customers or a system in a period of time such as month or year. The value may be the maximum instantaneous load or more usually the average load over a designated short interval of time such as one hour. Normally stated in kilowatts or megawatts.
