Electricity Load and Price Forecasting with MATLAB

Ameya Deoras, MathWorks

In this webinar, you will learn how MATLAB can be used to forecast short-term electricity loads and prices. Nonlinear regression and neural network modeling techniques are used to demonstrate accurate modeling using historical, seasonal, day-of-the week, and temperature data.

Highlights include:
Forecasting short-term electricity loads and prices
• Accessing data from regional wholesale electricity markets
• “White-box” modeling using customizable algorithms and viewable-source functions
• Deploying and integrating an energy load forecaster

This webinar is for practitioners at power generators, utilities or energy trading groups whose focus is transmission planning, distribution operations, derivative valuation, or quantitative analysis. Familiarity with MATLAB is not required.
