Load

The “load” is the total electricity consumption in the APG control area, including grid losses. To be able to predict the load over a certain time horizon, load forecast models and calculations are used to ensure both secure grid operation and security of supply for consumers. All forecasts are based on a model that incorporates the historical load data and the day type (including a public holiday calendar) as input data. The day-ahead load forecast is based additionally on the temperature forecast for the following day.
