e. Loads: Describe the total connected load and resulting kilowatt demand load by
applying proper demand and diversity factors, if a group of loads is involved.
f. Transformers: Describe type of transformer to be used, coolant, rating, protective
devices, and connection.
6.10.3 Instrumentation And Control Systems
a. Describe the overall process to be controlled and the control philosophy.
Indicate the control system inputs from the process and the control system outputs to
the process. Describe the process sensors and signals, the control system signals
and actuating devices. Describe the control algorithms to be implemented. Provide
a general sequence of operations. Indicate a typical functional diagram for control
