Enter the maximum demand (kW) and the connected load (kW) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Demand Factor.

## Demand Factor Formula

DF = MD / CL

Variables:

- DF is the Demand Factor (kW/kW)
- MD is the maximum demand (kW)
- CL is the connected load (kW)

To calculate the Demand Factor, divide the maximum demand by the connected load.

## How to Calculate Demand Factor?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Demand Factor.

- First, determine the maximum demand (kW).
- Next, determine the connected load (kW).
- Next, gather the formula from above = DF = MD / CL.
- Finally, calculate the Demand Factor.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

maximum demand (kW) = 300

connected load (kW) = 500
