THRILS: The Hourly Regional Industrial Load Simulator User Manual (Version 1.4)

Frank Denton, Christine Feaver, A. Robb () and Byron Spencer

Quantitative Studies in Economics and Population Research Reports from McMaster University

Abstract: THRILS is a computer program that embodies a model designed to generate daily and weekly electricity load profiles for 31 industries in 7 regions for each of 12 months under various user-controlled assumptions about weather conditions. The present report describes THRILS briefly but its main purpose is to provide a user manual for the program. The THRILS software itself can be purchased for $25 plus 8% Ontario provincial sales tax if applicable. The development and estimation of the model on which THRILS is based is described in detail in Frank T. Denton, Christine H. Feaver, Dean C. Mountain, A. Leslie Robb, and Byron G. Spencer, "Industry-Region Load Profiles: Econometric Estimation Based on Marginal Totals," QSEP Research Report No. 312.
