Maximum Demand Controller is a smart maximum demand controller designed for industries to keep a check on their maximum demand. It gives an alarm when demand approaches a preset value and also switches off non- essential loads in a pre-programmed logical sequence. This predictive maximum demand controller (MDC) allows stage wise load restoration to maximize the use of a sanctioned load. Maxchek is most suitable for the demand control of industrial consumers, HT consumers, and commercial establishments.
Contract Demand is the Maximum Demand which is sanctioned by the electricity authorities at the time of application for sanction of the load.
Allowed demand is set by the user with considering some margin to avoid any demand shoot up or exceed due to any reason.
Rising Demand is demand value at the present moment. It is zero at the beginning of IP (in the case of fixed type demand) and increases as load the load increased within the IP.
Present Load is last averaging cycle’s (1 to 5) load which clearly indicates your recent demand condition.
Present Load = Energy consumed in the last averaging period * 60 / Length of period
Time Left is time since now after which demand will cross allowed limit.
Suggested Load is the further load that needs to be maintained during remaining IP to keep the demand within allowed limit.
Spare Load Capacity is the amount of load that can be added to remain within safe limit of allowed demand.
