Long-term zonal demand forecasting is a complex problem for electric distribution systems, particularly when the planner has limited data, and therefore, needs smart approaches along with proper estimations. This paper presents a novel methodology to determine saturation curves (S-curves) of demand zones which are classified based on municipality development plans. The methodology which is based on combination of top-to-bottom and bottom-to-top (also called end-use) approaches, is applied to the network of Akdeniz Distribution Company (DISCO) of Turkey. Genetic algorithm (GA) technique is utilized to determine zonal S-curves by utilizing top-to-bottom projections and expected saturation demands of the zones. Sensitivity analysis shows that the proposed method gives reliable results as long as top-to-bottom results represent the total demand of the zones satisfactorily and the planner defines the constraints reasonably.

Finding optimal schedules in a home energy management system
Merdanoglu, Hakan; Yakici, Ertan; Dogan, O. Tufan; Duran, Serhan; Karatas, Mumtaz (Elsevier BV, 2020-05-01)
In this study, we model and solve the scheduling problem embedded in a home energy management system (HEMS), which enables users to overcome the major obstacles in implementing demand response programs. The problem aims to find the minimum energy cost while taking into account the time-varying prices, generation from renewable sources, usage demands for each appliance in household, battery storage capacity and grid constraints. Due to the uncertainties in supply, demand and electricity price, a stochastic o...
Assessment of solar data estimation models for four cities in Iran
Jahani, Elham; Sadati, S. M. Sajed; Yousefzadeh, Moslem (2015-04-29)
The estimated solar resources are important for designing renewable energy systems since measured data are not always available. The estimation models have been introduced in several studies. These models are mainly dependent on local meteorological data and need to be assessed for different locations and times. The current study compares the results of Angstrom's model and a neural network (NN) model developed for this study with measured data for four cities in Iran. The time resolution for the estimated ...
Allocation of Hourly Reserve Versus Demand Response for Security-Constrained Scheduling of Stochastic Wind Energy
Sahin, Cem; Shahidehpour, Mohammad; Erkmen, İsmet (2013-01-01)
This paper presents a stochastic method for the hourly scheduling of optimal reserves when the hourly forecast errors of wind energy and load are considered. The approach utilizes the stochastic security-constrained unit commitment (SCUC) model and a two-stage stochastic programming for the day-ahead scheduling of wind energy and conventional units with N - 1 contingencies. The effect of aggregated hourly demand (DR) response is considered as a means of mitigating transmission violations when uncertainties ...
