A new method to calculate residential consumer’s consumption using computer modeling


One of the most important issues in modeling and simulation of electricity distribution systems is to know different customers’ consumption, which depends on season, weekdays and hour day. So, load behavior pattern and determination of its value is of great importance. In this paper, a method is proposed to measure substation values using registers. Then, the method to obtain consumption pattern curve is presented. After that, a strategy is discussed to determine the peak and minimum values of load curve using normalized energy value consumed by customers. This method is implemented on a sample distribution system of Ashtian town in Iran. Obtained results verify the capability of the method to estimate load consumption value in each hour of a day.
