All base load power plants have a high load factor.
do you agree?
If we use high efficiency power plants to
supply the base load,we can reduce the cost of generation.
Hydel power plants have a higher efficiency than
thermal & nuclear power plants.
Then why can't we use hydel power plants as a base
load power plants during rainy season?
But,all friends are concentrating only on nuclear
power plants.I don't know why?
hi ppl, both nuclear and thermal vil ave a power load factor
(PLF) in the range of 60%-85% .n the overall PLF i.e,
considering all the thermal power stations,it is 77.5% but
for nuclear it is around 61%.so,ave u guezzd the answer?
s . its THERMAL POWER PLANT.in case of any improvement in
the answer,plz do notify me...gud luk..
i suppose the question was misunerstood by some persons.
The Plant Load factor is the term which means the output of
the power plant with respect to its rated output. (actual
o/p / Rated o/p). Generally PLF term calculated annual basis
(Viz. If a power plant have rated o/p 250 MW i.e. 250x24(hr)
x365(Days) (annual o/p) and its actual o/p is
250x24x340i.e. its o/p is less than its rated o/p )
most of the plant have PLF in between 65 to 100 %. the PLF
depends on power demand,maintanance outage of plant,forced
outage,actual plant generating capacity,etc.
Now the ans of the question asked by ms. asha
PLF not de[pend on type of power plant. but obviously PLF
of thermal,nuclear,gas power plant are higher than non
convential power plants. Thermal power plants can give PLF
more than 100%.If it operate at higher the rated capacity
(e.g. Dahanu Thermal Power plantsPLF is above 100%)
