Electrical - Demand Factor

560 Views, 1 Replies

I'm working in MEP 2011 and setting up a panelboard schedule. I've connected all my loads to the panel and now I want to change the demand factor of the HVAC load classification from 100% to 80%. I have gone through all the equipment and made sure the connectors are have the demand factor at 80% but on the schedule it still shows up at 100%.

 

I am lost at what to do from here and I don't really want to create formulas for each load since the setting should figure out the demand factor is at 80%. It is a possibility that i missed some equipment since this is a good sized project.

 

Anything help would be great since this is really my first time custimizing the schedules.

 

thanks

Have you made sure that in the drawing where you are creating the schedules that it has the load category's demand factor set to 0.80?
