Introduction

Electric load forecasting is an important decision-making tool for energy management in both sectors of SG i.e., supply-side and demand side. It also plays a crucial role in the secure and economic operations of SG. Keeping a foresaid objectives the recent research in SG focus load scheduling supported optimization techniques. However, the accuracy of electrical load forecasting models has compromised thanks to their inﬂuence on stochastic factors like global convergence climate change, human social activates, and country policies. Consequently, it is diﬃcult to enhance the forecast accuracy and hardly realistic to require all the inﬂuencing factors under consideration. . The proposed model predicts the day ahead and week ahead electric load for deciding of the SG. The recommended model may be a hybrid model having four modules i.e., dispose of and countenance selection module, FCRBM based forecaster module, GWDO (the hereditary wind has driven expansion) algorithm-based optimizer module, and utilization module.

Numerous models are proposed and applied for an accurate load fore-casting over the fast few decades like legacy classical forecasting models including exponential smoothing, regression models, autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) models, grey forecasting model (GM), and kalman ﬁlters. The aforementioned forecasting models forecast the electrical load but the accuracy isn’t up to the specified level thanks to their inherent limitations. The rectilinear regression models depend upon historical data and aren’t suitable to unravel the non-linear problems. The ARIMA models taking into consideration previous and present data points while ignoring other inﬂuencing factors.

Electric load forecasting strategies are developed for several years in literature thanks to its importance within the deciding of SG. The forecasting strategies are categorized into four categories consistent with the forecasting period. Thus, an intelligent model is required that intelligently take the key parameters to enhance forecast accuracy. Numerous models are proposed and applied for an accurate load fore-casting over the fast few decades like legacy classical forecasting models including exponential smoothing, regression models, autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) models, grey forecasting model (GM), and kalman ﬁlters. The aforementioned forecasting models forecast the electrical load but the accuracy isn’t up to the specified level thanks to their inherent limitations. In order to satisfy the above global goals, future power systems and thus the distribution systems need to enable, among other things, the efficient integration of large-scale intermittent generation of various sizes and technologies (e. g., wind farms, solar thermal generation, photovoltaic, etc.). In the last decade, a replacement wave of changes has been happening within the power systems, known under the name smart convergence grids (SG), which has a significant influence on the electrical distribution systems (DS), as well. The strategic goals to be fulfilled under the SG concept are: fulfilling targets of the EU by the year 2020, increasing reliability and security of supply, improving the efficiency of supply, ensuring energy independence, and enabling new technologies (e. g., plug-in electrical vehicles). Furthermore, the change of a distribution network from being “passive” and hooked into a person’s operator’s intervention into an “active” one should be enabled. this is often required thanks to the increasing complexity of network operations, to the wide deployment of distributed generation, and to the increasing challenges in ensuring security and quality of supply. Hence, the SG concept will induce new technologies also as new goals within the distribution system’s design and operation. during this environment, the prevailing business processes within the distribution system need to be changed, i. e. redefined. Detail overview of goals and activities/changes within the relevant business processes in DS which will enable fulfilling the above global goals are presented within the second and third sections. within the fourth section, there’s a summary of activities that are realized thus far within the Power Distribution Company “Elektro Vojvodina” (PDC “Elektro Vojvodina”) within the course of the event of the SG concept while within the fifth section, the stress is on key elements for successful SG implementation within the distribution companies. The ﬁrst category is that the very short-term forecasting which corresponds to but at some point. The second category is that the short-term forecasting which corresponds to the forecasting period of 1 day to at least one week. The third category is medium-term forecasting which corresponds to at least one week and a year ahead forecasting. The fourth category is that the long-term forecasting which corresponds to quite a year ahead forecasting. Statistical tools and AI-based tools are commonly used for electric load forecasting. The recent and related work is summarized within the table.

In literature, many authors used ANN-based forecaster for load prediction thanks to its capability to predict the nonlinearity of consumers’ load. However, the performance of ANN-based models isn’t satisfactory in terms of accuracy. Thus, some authors integrated optimization modules with ANN-based forecaster, which improves signiﬁcantly the forecast accuracy. However, the accuracy is improved at the value of a slow convergence rate. Moreover, the ANN-based models are suitable for little data size while their performance is degraded because of the data size increases. The ﬁrst category is that the very short-term forecasting which corresponds to but at some point. The second category is that the short-term forecasting which corresponds to the forecasting period of 1 day to at least one week. The third category is medium-term forecasting which corresponds to at least one week and a year ahead forecasting. The fourth category is that the long-term forecasting which corresponds to quite a year ahead forecasting. Statistical tools and AI-based tools are commonly used for electric load forecasting. The recent and related work is summarized within the table. Thus, we proposed a replacement electric load forecasting model based on FCRBM.

The proposed model is subjected to accuracy, convergence rate, and scalability. The proposed system architecture comprises of 4 modules: processing and has selection module, FCRBM based forecaster module, GWDO based optimizer module, and utilization module. The input file including historical load data and exogenous data (temperature, humidity, wind speed, and dew point) is fed into the info processing and has a selection module. At ﬁrst, the info cleansing is performed to recover the missing and defective values. Then, the clean data is normalized to get rid of the outliers and make the info within the limit of the activation function. The input data(X) includes electric load data (P(h, d)), temperature data (T(h, d)), humidity data (H(h, d)), temperature (D(h, d)), and wind speed (W(h, d)). This shows a particular hour and shows the actual day of historical data. The temperature, humidity, dew point, and wind speed are called exogenous variables. The ﬁrst category is that the very short-term forecasting which corresponds to but at some point. The second category is that the short-term forecasting which corresponds to the forecasting period of 1 day to at least one week. The third category is medium-term forecasting which corresponds to at least one week and a year ahead forecasting. The fourth category is that the long-term forecasting which corresponds to quite a year ahead forecasting. Statistical tools and AI-based tools are commonly used for electric load forecasting. The normalized data is a skilled irrelevancy ﬁlter, redundancy ﬁlter, and candidate interaction phase subjected to the removal of irrelevant, redundant, and non-constructive information. The ﬁrst category is that the very short-term forecasting which corresponds to but at some point. The second category is that the short-term forecasting which corresponds to the forecasting period of 1 day to at least one week.

The third category is medium-term forecasting which corresponds to at least one week and a year ahead forecasting. The fourth category is that the long-term forecasting which corresponds to quite a year ahead forecasting. Statistical tools and AI-based tools are commonly used for electric load forecasting. The recent and related work is summarized within the table. The relevance of candidates’ input to the target variable is signiﬁcant for abstractive feature selection. For relevancy measurements, literature many techniques are utilized in which MI features selection technique is sweet. The MI measures the relevance between two variables x and y. The measurement is interpreted as observing y by on x and the other way around. Many authors modeled the redundancy operation between the candidate inputs. the aim is to get rid of redundant information from the input file to enhance the convergence rate. The redundancy is evaluated in terms of the mutual information among the 2 candidate inputs. In literature, authors demonstrated that closely related candidate inputs reduce the performance of feature selection techniques. the rationale is that two candidate inputs have an outsized number of mutual information and fewer redundant information about the target variable. Used redundancy and irrelevancy ﬁlters for feature selection. However, the individual features could also be irrelevant but become relevant when used alongside other input candidates.

Thus, the feature selection technique is often extended to interaction among the candidate inputs. If two candidate inputs xi and x shave redundant information about target y, then the joint MI of both candidates with y is going to be but the sum of individual MIs. Thus, the result is going to be negative consistent with Eq. 3, which indicates redundant features xi and x for the forecaster. The purpose of this module is to plan a framework that’s enabled via learn-ing to forecast the longer term electric load. From Sect. 2it is concluded that each one forecast models are capable to predict nonlinear electric load proﬁle. Thus, we chose FCRBM for the forecaster module thanks to two reasons: (a) it predict the non-linear electric load with reasonable accuracy and convergence rate, (b) and its performance is improving with the scalability of knowledge. FCRBM may be a deep learning model. it’s four layers i.e., hidden layer, visible layer, style layer, and history layer. Each layer features a particular number of the neuron. within the forecaster module, FCRBM is activated by a rectiﬁed linear measure (RELU) activation function. The ﬁrst category is that the very short-term forecasting which corresponds to but at some point. The second category is that the short-term forecasting which corresponds to the forecasting period of 1 day to at least one week. The third category is medium-term forecasting which corresponds to at least one week and a year ahead forecasting. The fourth category is that the long-term forecasting which corresponds to quite a year ahead forecasting. Statistical tools and AI-based tools are commonly used for electric load forecasting. The RELU is chosen among the activation function because it overcomes the issues of overﬁlling and vanishing gradient, and has fast convergence as compared to other activation functions. The preceding module returns the longer term predicted load with some error, which is minimum as per the potential of FCRBM, RELU, and training algorithm. To further minimize the forecast error the output of the forecaster module is fed into the optimizer module. the aim of the optimizer module is to attenuate the forecast error. The forecasted load is employed for future planning that needed state permitsﬁnancing, right of the way, transmission and generation equipment, power lines(transmission lines and distribution lines), and substation construction.

Conclusion

It also plays a crucial role in the secure and economic operations of SG. Keeping a foresaid objectives the recent research in SG focus load scheduling supported optimization techniques. However, the accuracy of electrical load forecasting models has compromised thanks to their inﬂuence on stochastic factors like global climate change, human social activates, and country policies. Consequently, it is diﬃcult to enhance the forecast accuracy and hardly realistic to require all the inﬂuencing factors under consideration. . The proposed model predicts the day ahead and week ahead electric load for deciding of the SG. Thus, an eﬃcient electric load forecasting model supported FCRBM is proposed to supply accurate load forecasts with aﬀordable execution time. The proposed model is examined on the FE grid data of the USA. The obtained results are compared with other load forecasting models (MI-m EDE-ANN, AFC-STLF, Bi-level, and FS-ANN) in terms of both accuracy and convergence rate. it’s validated that our proposed FCRBM-ELF model outperforms the opposite models in terms of forecast accuracy and convergence rate.
