Energy Load Forescasting

Course Overview:

Load forecast is critical for power planning and power trade in the country and at cross-borders. Understanding the concepts of forecasting methodologies provides insights to both operators on the generation side and the system operators. The course has been designed to provide a comprehensive approach to all aspects of load forecasting using traditional modelling techniques such as linear regression and autoregressive integrate moving average as well as other recent models such as neural network models.
