During the last decades, ever since load management was first considered as a way of reducing the peak loads of electric power systems, interest has focussed on residential and commercial customers. All kinds of load management programs have been implemented for groups of these customer classes. This book concentrates on electricity demand by industrial customers and the specific load management alternatives that can be adopted by industry. All branches of industry have been studied and the book contains branch-wise information about total energy use and specified use of electricity and fuels. The main electric power demanding processes and equipment are identified and the load characteristics are described. Theoretical aspects are combined with guidance on practical performance. The book also contains a powerful simulation model which is described in detail. The model program code, in PASCAL, is included together with basic input data files. Results revealed in the book show that profitability is highly dependent on both the industrial load management strategies and the structure of the electricity rate.
