What does plant load factor measure?          

Dear Student


The measure of average capacity utilisation is referred to as Plant Load Factor. In other words, it is a measure of the operational efficiency of the thermal power plants. The electricity generated is divided by the total production capacity to get PLF. A higher PLF implies higher generation of electricity and lower cost per unit.

Plant Load Factory (PLF) is the ratio between the actual energy
generated by the plant to the MAXIMUM possible energy that can be
generated with the plant working at its rated power and for a duration
of an entire year.
