Lost Production Based on System Availability

For lost production calculations that are based on system availability, lost production is calculated as

Equation 4. 
Eli=0 if PaiPpiE_{li}=0\text{ if }P_{ai}\geP_{pi}


Equation 5. 
Otherwise Eli=16(Ppi-Pai)\text{Otherwise }E_{li}=\frac{1}{6}\left(P_{pi}-P_{ai}\right)


where:

Eli is the lost production for a 10-minute period

At is the system availability.

1/6 is used to convert power (W) to energy (Wh). For a longer period of time lost production is calculated as

Equation 6. 
Et=i=1nEliE_t=\sum_{i=1}^nE_{li}


where n is the number of 10-minute periods.
