Load Duration Curve

A Load Duration curve (LDC) is a curve formed by placing the loads in descending order of their magnitude.



The curve is essentially a bar graph.  Each bar represents a specific load.  The taller bars indicating the higher loads are placed to the left.  The area under the load curve indicates the total units generated. 

The Load Duration Curve can be used in economic dispatching, system planning and reliability.
