Abstract

The paper aims at illustrating a residential electric load simulator that implements a psychological model of the customer’s energy usage. The model attempts to reproduce the daily electric load shape of a residential area by aggregating household’s individual contributions. Each individual household’s daily load shape is obtained by means of a bottomup mechanism based upon interaction between the two elemental units of demand: household’s member and individual appliance. The model can be defined psychological since adopts several probabilistic functions such as “availability-at-home” and “proclivity-to-house-activities” of household’s member for accounting for lifestyle factors affecting energy usage in house. In the paper, some main figures of the simulation model are reported in due detail. Finally, some main results of the validation activity performed on the model applied to available data relevant to the Italian households are reported and commented.
