Predicted demand

The meter calculates predicted demand for the end of the present interval for kW, kVAR, and kVA demand, taking into account the energy consumption so far within the present (partial) interval and the present rate of consumption.

Predicated demand is updated according to the update rate of your meter.

The following illustration shows how a change in load can affect predicted demand for the interval. In this example, the interval is set to 15 minutes.

A Beginning of interval E Change in load
B Demand for last completed interval F Predicted demand if load is added during interval; predicted demand increases to reflect increased demand
C 15-minute interval G Predicted demand if no load is added
D Partial interval H Time
