Analysis of Costs of Variable-Load and Multiple Power Supply

Edward H. Scofield


This study is based upon the actual performance of a plant in operation and includes a classification of costs designed to facilitate the calculation of the influence made thereon by a load of variable demand. Also it attempts to simplify the consideration of load characteristics and to determine the value of constants relating to certain factors of operation. Reference is made to the application of the results to a study for determining the economics of a power supply for the local electric railway system.
