This whitepaper from DNV GL addresses challenges to the traditional distribution planning processes, discussing the different data types which can be used by the utilities and the data analysis processes and assumptions.

The whitepaper examines: 

  • The transition from peak load planning to time series analysis
  • The various types of data used for developing load profiles
  • Three different data collection scenarios:
    -   SCADA data
    -   SCADA with separate load and generation meters
    -   AMI data, customer classes
  • Practicality vs. accuracy for data collection methods
