Title: Robust estimation of the total electricity load curve by sampling in a finite population
Authors: Camelia Goga - Universite de Bourgogne (France) [presenting]
Abstract: Many studies carried out in the French electricity company (EDF) are based on the analysis of total electricity consumption curves measured at a small time scale (often half-hourly) for one or several groups of clients sharing some common characteristics (e.g. customers of the same electricity provider, having a particular electric equipment or living in a given geographic area). The aim of these studies can be, for example, to assist the power grid manager in maintaining the balance between electricity consumption and production at every instant on the power grid. The total consumption curves can also be used to help the Sales Division to quantify the impact of a specific electric use or equipment on the electricity consumption, to build new innovative pricing strategies or to create new services based on customers consumption analysis.
