ADVANCED FORECASTING, PLANNING AND DEMAND SIDE MANAGEMENT AND BIDDING

22 – 24 MARCH 2017, SINGAPORE

About The Course

This course integrates the important aspects of demand forecasting used in distribution planning with the view of demand bidding and management. Load forecasting is critical in the process of planning periodical operations and facility expansion in the electricity sector. Demand pattern is very complex due to the customer response to various parameters as well as deregulation of energy markets. Therefore, finding an appropriate model for a specific electricity network is not an easy task. The trainer brings with him real case studies and examples from his direct experience in this industry.

The distribution planning part of the course has been designed to view the needs of system through the economic justification. The delegates will get a good understanding of issues associated with planning of MV up to 132kV and LV 230/400V electricity networks via a practical approach that contains worked and delegate examples. The course will link the planning concepts for various network configurations along with demand side management and bidding.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to understand and put into practice the following key learning points

  • Significance and implementation of Load Forecast, Planning and Bidding
  • Data mining and information requirement for the forecasting analysis
  • Methodology from forecasting to management of the demand
  • Planning and Bidding concept
  • Review of benchmark model for different utilities and examples from practice
  • Practical implementation, best practice and continuous updates

This course has been designed to give electrical engineers, engineering managers and other professionals a sound grounding and understanding of the principles of planning the electricity networks – both in industrial settings and electricity utilities focusing on the importance that load is playing in energy market. It will also link technical parameters such as fault levels, harmonics and power quality with the economic and commercial parameters of power generation that is used in demand side bidding methodology.
