The diversity factor is always

The diversity factor is always:

  1. Less than 1
  2. Equal to 1
  3. Greater than 1
  4. None of the above

Correct answer: 3. Greater than 1

Diversity factor is defined as ratio of sum of individual maximum demands to maximum demand on power station.


Diversity factor = Sum of individual maximum demands/Max demand on the power station

Since the sum of individual maximum demands is always higher than the maximum demand on power station the diversity factor is always greater than 1.
