Permanent Load

Permanent Load

 

in structural mechanics. In calculating a structure, a permanent load is a load that is assumed to remain unchanged in magnitude, line of action, and point of application. Examples are the dead weight of the structure and the earth pressure.

permanent load

The load which is permanently supported by a structure, such as the dead load or any fixed loads.

First, the permanent load at motor/machine standstill is reduced; second, the consumption depending on the process is dynamically adjusted considering the target completion times/dates (partial load operation); and third, energy is saved during processing by switching off components that are not required at a particular time or point in the process (partial machine operation).
