The size of the generating units will depend on
- Variation of load (load curve) during 24 hours (summer, winter, week-days, holidays).
- Total capacity of units connected to the electric grid.
- Minimum start-up and shut-down periods of the units.
- Maintenance programme planned.
- Plant efficiency vs. size of unit.
- Price and space demand per kW vs. size of unit.
