Abstract:

It is necessary to study the possibilities for the sale of electric power by considering the plans for development, the probable number of consumers, the power requirements of each type of load, the time at which loads might be required, the types of loads to be supplied, and various other factors that determine the total power that should be made available at the power station to cope with the need. The maximum power consumption demand of Arghandab and Shahwali-kot districts of Kandahar province has been assessed in this paper using the load survey method and computer-based for four seasons. In the spring season, the maximum demand, average load, and load factor of Arghandab and Shahwali-kot districts per home in a 24-hour period are 1450 W, 388 W, and 0.27 or 27%, respectively. For the summer season maximum demand, the average load and load factor are 1500 W, 636 W, and 0.42 or 42%, respectively. For the fall season maximum demand, the average load and load factor are 1250 W, 340.5 W, and 0.27 or 27%, respectively. And for winter season maximum demand, the average load and load factor are 1960 W, 465.5 W, and 0.24 or 24%, respectively.
