Description: One of the earliest tasks for the engineer who is designing a power system is to estimate the normal operating plant load. He is also interested in knowing how much additional margin he should include in the final design. There are no ‘hard and fast’ rules for estimating loads, and various basic questions need to be answered at the beginning of a project
