A maximum entropy approach to the estimation of spatially and sectorally disaggregated electricity load curves

Abstract: Usually, disaggregated electricity load curves are estimated by using Top-Down or Bottom-Up approaches. The former requires estimating weightings for downscaling aggregated information, while the latter requires extrapolating micro-level information. In both cases, estimation would ideally be based on as much regional and sector specific information as possible, in order to obtain a realistic representation of the magnitude and temporal pattern of a regional sector’s electricity consumption. Typically, such attempts are significantly hampered by issues of limited and possibly inconsistent data, differing levels of detail, and mismatching data classifications.
