With the understanding that Duty Cycle is based on a 10 minute work period, is a percentage determined at the unit's maximim capacity?

For example, a 20% duty cycle for a 150 amp unit. This would mean 2 minutes work at 150 amps followed by an 8 minute cooling time. Let's say however that only 75 amps are being used, does this increase the duty cycle?
