Points
Base load plant
Peak load plant
Definition
The power plant which supplies base load of load curve is known as base load plant 
The power plant which supplies peak load of load curve is known as peak load plant
Generating capacity
High
Low
Firm capacity
High
Low
Working Hours
24 hours
Only during peak load hours
Cost of generation/ unit
Generally low cost of generation per unit are selected as base load plant
Generally high cost of generation per unit are selected as peak load plant
Starting time
Both quick & more starting time power plant can be selected as a base load plant
Quick starting time power plant are selected as a peak load plant 
Load factor
High
Low
Utilization factor
More
Less
Examples
Large capacity hydro,thermal,nuclear power station
Small capacity storage hydro,pumped storage hydro,gas,diesel power station.
