Development of An Improved Distribution Load Estimates Methodology (NIA_NPG_004)
This project is to apply computational/statistical analysis tools and techniques to the historic distribution network demand data with a view to identifying the presence or otherwise of underlying trends within the data itself or linked to other parameters. The key output from this project is a fully documented new tool/model and process for forecasting network demand which is materially more accurate/more robust to internal and external challenge than the present process. This will facilitate enhanced robustness of the associated investment planning decisions, both internally and externally.
Timescales: 04/2015 - 11/2015
