Voltage Regulation:
Definition: Real voltage sources are unable to hold the voltage constant as they assume a significant amount of load (Resistance or Impedance). This results in the difference between Vno load and Vfull load.
The formula for Voltage Regulation is as follows:
Voltage Reg. = (Vno load  Vfull load)/ Vfull load x 100%

Service Factor of a Motor:
Definition: Service factor of a motor is the ratio of safe to standard (nameplate) loads. Service factor is expressed in decimal. The formula for Service Factor is as follows:
Service Factor = Safe Load / Nameplate Load
