Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-theart simulators. Planning the operation in modern power systems requires suitable anticipation of load evolution at different levels of distribution network. Under this perspective, load forecasting performs an important task, allowing optimization of investments and the adequate exploitation of existing distribution networks. Load forecasting is an essential element of power system involving prognosis of the future level of demand to serve as the basis for the supply side and demand side planning. The load requirements are to be predicted in advance so that the power system operates effectively and efficiently. It is done for planning, marketing, risk assessment, billing, dispatch or unit commitment purposes. Further, Load forecasting can help to estimate load flows and to make decisions that can prevent overloading. Timely implementations of such decisions lead to the improvement of network reliability and to the reduced occurrences of equipment failures and blackouts. This course is designed to provide participants with a good overview of the above mentioned models and the latest techniques used in forecasting electrical loads. The course will cover Electric Power Distribution load forecasting (how it is done), Planning Methods, Load Behavior and Load Growth Characteristics, Basic Theory and Mathematics of Modern Distribution Load Forecasting, Practical Forecasting, ?Curve Expert? Spatial Electric Load Forecasting and user Instructions software, Accuracy and Information content requirement for evaluating the goodness and fitted estimate, Examination of T&D Planning and Forecasting needs, Short-Term Load Forecasting, Review of the Load Forecasting Techniques and guidelines for selection, Application of the Best Methods, Integrated Resource Planning, Value Based Planning, and Planning Capacity Needs of Power Delivery. link to course overview PDF
