A functional analysis of electrical load curve modelling for some households specific electricity end-uses

Abstract : In the next decades the European residential sector will face a series of deep technical and behavioural breaks. Among them are : the integration of new electrical domestic end-uses, the development of plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles, the increase of heat pumps implementations, the improvement and the technological changes in small electrical appliances. This will imply some behavioural modifications in the lifestyles. For example, the wishes in terms of comfort and the way electrical devices are used will evolve significantly. The energy consumption is likely to increase but the residential load curve will also be strongly modified. We then propose a functional analysis which enables to take into account, for each end-use, according to its own specificities, the key points that allow to build-up a relevant load curve. This will lead us to step down at the appliance level which will be the starting point of our modelling method. After a general description of the methodology, we will present three case studies for the following end-uses: washing, cooling and lighting. We will consider for each device the main determining factors of which are the technical features, the occupancy patterns of the household members, the activity scenarios in the dwellings, the climate. This bottomup approach will generate intrinsically some kind of diversity needed to represent the temporality and the level of the power demand for a large number of households. This methodology allows, after an aggregation step, the calculation of the load curves for households at various spatial scales.
