The value of the Demand Factor is generally:
- Less than 1
- Equal to 1
- More than 1
- None of these
Correct answer: The value of the Demand Factor is less than 1.
The demand factor is mathematically defined as the ratio of maximum demand and connected load.
Demand Factor = Maximum demand/Connected
Since the maximum demand is always smaller than the connected load in practical cases, the value of the demand factor is always less than 1.
