Trimble (Amtech) question

Trimble (Amtech) question

Trimble (Amtech) question

I have a question about diversity and load utilisation factor with Trimble software.

Say we have a 3ph 400v 150kW load with 0.8 pf which gives 187.5 kVA and we also have a diversity of 0.8 and a load utilisation factor of 0.9.

Applying these factors we will end up with a kVA of 135kVA (187.5 x 0.8 x 0.9). If we were to input this into Trimble there isn’t an input for load utilisation factor so in the diversity box do we enter 0.8 or to account for the utilisation factor do we enter 0.72 ( 0.8x0.9)?
