Abstract

The heterogeneity of domestic loads presents Distribution Network Operators with operational uncertainties which may become problematic as generation capacity shrinks and network infrastructure ages. High resolution meter advances recorded by increasingly ubiquitous Smart Meters can be seen as representing base loads along with aggregations of multiple domestic appliances – in this letter, a Bayesian formulation of the finite mixture probability distribution is employed to enumerate and capture generalizations of these, from which compact representations of domestic load profiles can be formed.
