“How can we determine the potential used by a power-plant during a given period of time?”

 

Power plants are capable of generating a certain amount of energy. But only so much of it actually gets used. The ratio of energy used/potential energy is known as the Plant Capacity Factor. A simple way to conceive of the plant capacity factor is to think about the amount you can study in an hour compared to how much you study. Although you might be able to study a lot in an hour, the amount you actually study determines your efficiency!
