MPhil research project: Electricity Load Forecasting for Low Carbon Communities

This project is part of the low carbon living CRC Research Program 2002. The aim is to develop a tool for modelling the demand and demand interactions between energy, transport, waste and water. The model will capture the greenhouse gas emissions and cost to implement for a scenario being analysed. The project will use the demand models to analysis electricity grid impacts of low carbon communities and investigating aspects such as power quality, stability, losses and analyse the integration of new technologies.
