This property sets/gets the response to load multipliers={Variable | Fixed | Exempt}.  Default is variable. If Fixed, no load multipliers apply;  however, growth multipliers do apply.  All multipliers apply to Variable loads.  Exempt loads are not modified by the global load multiplier, such as in load duration curves, etc.  Daily multipliers do apply, so setting this property to Exempt is a good way to represent industrial load that stays the same day-after-day for the period study.
