Analysis of standardized load profiles based on measured load data of residential and commercial customers

Principal: Distribution system operator

Standardized load profiles (SLPs) are used for balancing and billing end consumers with an annual consumption less than 100 MWh. SLPs should represent typical consumption patterns of end user groups, e. g. households and commercial customers.

The Chair of Energy Economics analysed the current profiles, real system load and measured data from a number of households and commercial customers. It became apparent that the standard profiles by BDEW possess systematic differences from real system load. The SLP could be improved via an aggregation of selected measured data.
