Short-term Load Forecasting Using Artificial Neural Network

Download Paper


In electrical engineering load forecasting have been tried out using traditional forecasting models and artificial neural network and have become one of the major research fields. An accurate and efficient Short-term load forecasting (STLF) plays a vital role for economic operational planning of both regulated power systems and electricity markets. To develop a solution/methodology to demand forecast (Hourly load forecast) and by incorporating weather conditions. However, STLF it is pertinent to understand conventional methods. Therefore, popular conventional methods were implemented to learn methods for STLF. This paper presents Simple Moving Average, Weighted Moving Average, Exponential Moving Average, for short term load forecasting. Conventional technique approach is implemented on historical load data for forecasting the load.and one AI technique use for ANN. PGVCL hourly load data used for training and testing is collected from ALDC, Jetpur, Gujarat. Hence hereby in this paper I have compared four conventional methods for STLF and have come out with a result that forecasting errors of time series models gives reasonably accurate hour ahead load forecast.
