Need help in electrical load studies

  1. Feb 19, 2010 #1
    Hello guys. I study in an engineering college and I'm an electrical engineer. Me and 7 other people have been assigned by our department HOD to conduct load studies of the entire college, each department being individually surveyed. We need to conduct the load consumption of each department at various intervals of time and suggest way to effective power management. Can anyone brief me on how to go about this? Thank you.

    I'd start by visiting each location and listing each load. Then I would assign a utilization factor based on how long the load is in use.
