Andhra Pradesh forecasts energy demand using artificial intelligence

The Transmission Corporation of Andhra Pradesh (APTRANSCO) has deployed the day-ahead electricity forecasting model using artificial intelligence and machine learning to forecast the next day’s electricity consumption (in units).

This will also cover day-ahead electricity demand (in MW) for every 15 minutes. According to Andhra Pradesh State Load Dispatch Centre (SLDC), this will enable them to take decisions on electricity demand and supply, grid management and minimise power purchase cost. With the development and deployment of this day-ahead electricity demand forecasting model, APTransco intends to develop more day-ahead forecast models for wind energy, solar energy, market prices, central generating stations surplus and frequency.
