# Load Factor

The Load Factor Calculator is a tool that calculates the ratio between the average power $D_{average}$ and the maximum demand $D_{max}$ in a period of time.

$$LF=\frac{D_{average}}{D_{max}}=\frac{I}{D_{max}} \frac{\sum\limits_{t=0}^T D(t)dt}{T}$$

It is used for cyclic loading calculations acc. to Neher McGrath.

We offer the Load Factor Calculator **for free!** Happy simulating !
