Utility application oriented energy forecasting
Focus on practical needs of utilities:
- Data: outlier detection, data cleansing, selection of weather station(s)
- Inputs: temperature forecast, wind forecast, solar forecast, EV load forecast, customer behavior, demand response activities, loss evaluation
- Modeling: hierarchical (system-substation-feeder-meter) forecasting, multi-region forecasting
- Applications (outputs): price forecasting, demand response analysis, planning of demand side management, risk management, weather normalization, loss evaluation
