D. Hourly Load Curves
At certain locations where data from automatic recording or monitoring equipment are not available, or as
a supplement to such Information, It may be desirable to maintain a continuing record of loading on certain
facilities In the form of Hourly Load Curves. Such facilities might include major transmission circuits,
important interconnections with adjacent utilities, individual transformers, etc.
Two standard forms, Nos. 7-1388 and 7-1389, are available for such use. They will permit the plotting of
hourly values over a 1-week period, to indicate the full pattern of loading on a facility for normal weekdays,
weekends, and a full calendar week. The primary purposes of such curves are to show the full range of
loading, illustrate trends, serve as a basis for future predictions, and indicate whether optimum utilization
is being made of a particular facility. Preparation of the curves is not mandatory, but their use could prove
valuable for the above purposes, and for inclusion in reports where such Information might be required.
