Layer Recurrent Neural Network based Power System Load Forecasting

Nikita Mittal, Akash Saxena


This paper presents a straight forward application of Layer Recurrent Neural Network (LRNN) to predict the load of a large distribution network. Short term load forecasting provides important information about the system’s load pattern, which is a premier requirement in planning periodical operations and facility expansion. Approximation of data patterns for forecasting is not an easy task to perform. In past, various approaches have been applied for forecasting. In this work application of LRNN is explored. The results of proposed architecture are compared with other conventional topologies of neural networks on the basis of Root Mean Square of Error (RMSE), Mean Absolute Percentage Error (MAPE) and Mean Absolute Error (MAE). It is observed that the results obtained from LRNN are comparatively more significant.
