TRAINING: Long Term Load Forecasting

2-Day Course 

October 10th - October 11th

Company: Hong Analytics

Course Info: Load forecasting is a fundamental element in utility business operations and planning processes. During the past 120 plus years, load forecasting methodologies have evolved as the industry and related technologies progress. Consequently, many classical methods are no longer suitable in addressing today's challenges in the utility industry.

This course offers a comprehensive and in-depth treatment to long-term load forecasting. The content includes a review of the fundamental concepts and classical methods, a statistical approach that leverages high resolution data and modern computing power, probabilistic forecasting that helps better quantify the uncertainties of the unpredictable future, and several advanced and emerging challenges triggered by big data, renewable energy integration and demand side management programs. Real-world examples and case studies are embedded throughout the course when introducing the theories and methodologies. 

The course also includes a computer lab session based on MS Excel, MATLAB, R or SAS.
