Introduction

**Figure 1. Example of a load profile (using the autonomy method)
**

The energy load profile (hereafter referred to as simply "load profile") is an estimate of

the total energy demanded from a power system or sub-system over a specific period of

time (e.g. hours, days, etc). The load profile is essentially a two-dimensional chart

showing the instantaneous load (in Volt-Amperes) over time, and represents a

convenient way to visualise how the system loads changes with respect to time.

Note that it is distinct from the electrical load schedule - the load profile incorporates a

time dimension and therefore estimates the energy demand (in kWh) instead of just the

instantaneous load / power (in kW).

**Why do the calculation?
**

Estimating the energy demand is important for the sizing of energy storage devices, e.g.

batteries, as the required capacity of such energy storage devices depends on the total

amount of energy that will be drawn by the loads. This calculation is also useful for

energy efficiency applications, where it is important to make estimates of the total

energy use in a system.

**When to do the calculation?
**

A load profile needs to be constructed whenever the sizing of energy storage devices

(e.g. batteries) is required. The calculation can be done once preliminary load

information is available.

Calculation Methodology

but with some differences in the details: Step 1: Prepare the load list Step 2: Construct the load profile Step 3: Calculate the design load and design energy demand Step 1: Prepare the Load List The first step is to transform the collected loads into a load list. but is a little simplified for the purpose of constructing a load profile. However. UPS systems. instead of categorising loads by their load duty (continuous. the associated time period is called the "autonomy" and is the number of hours that the load needs to be supported during a power supply interruption. intermittent or standby). Some loads may only be required to ride through brief interruptions or have enough .Figure 2.g. Both methods share the same three general steps. For instance. it is assumed that all loads are operating continuously. solar systems. or energy efficiency applications. a key difference of this load list is the time period associated with each load item: In the autonomy method. 2) 24 Hour Profile method displays the average or expected instantaneous loads over a 24 hour period. Example of a load profile (using the 24 hour profile method) There are two distinct methods for constructing a load profile: 1) Autonomy method is the traditional method used for backup power applications. It is similar in form to the electrical load schedule. This method is more commonly associated with standalone power system applications. which is the period of time that the loads need to be supported by a backup power system in the event of a power supply interruption. e. e. In this method. the instantaneous loads are displayed over an autonomy time.g.

the ON and OFF time would be 0:00 and 23:59 respectively. The construction of the load profile will be explained by a simple example: .autonomy to shut down safely. Calculating the Consumed Load VA For this calculation. These are the times in the day (in hours and minutes) that the load is expected to be switched on and then later turned off. For loads that operate continuously. A load item may need to be entered in twice if it is expected to start and stop more than once a day. In the 24 hour profile method. the associated time period is represented in terms of "ON" and "OFF" times. we are interested in the consumed apparent power of the loads (in VA). while some critical systems may need to operate for as long as possible (up to several days). For each load. this can be calculated as follows: Where is the consumed load apparent power (VA) is the consumed load power (W) is the load power factor (pu) is the load efficiency (pu) Examples of load lists Autonomy method 24 hour profile method Step 2: Construct the Load Profile The load profile is constructed from the load list and is essentially a chart that shows the distribution of the loads over time.

in this example it is the Telecommunications Cabinet that is stacked first. cables.g. For example. distribution and protection devices should be rated. circuit breakers. the time difference between the ON and OFF times).g. Step 3: Calculate Design Load and Energy Demand Design Load The design load is the instantaneous load for which the power conversion. inverters. The load profile is created by stacking the widest rectangles first. etc.Figure 3. fuses. The design can be calculated as follows: . e. Load profile constructed for this example Suppose the following loads were identified based on the Autonomy Method: Description Load (VA) Autonomy (h) DCS Cabinet 200 4 ESD Cabinet 200 4 Telecommunications Cabinet 150 6 Computer Console 90 2 The load profile is constructed by stacking "energy rectangles" on top of each other. e. An energy rectangles has the load VA as the height and the autonomy time as the width and its area is a visual representation of the load's total energy. energy rectangles are constructed with the periods of time that a load is energised (i. the DCS Cabinet has an energy rectangle of height 200 (VA) and width 4 (hours).e. For the 24 Hour method. rectifiers.

Given a future growth contingency of 10% and a design margin of 10%. The design energy demand (or design VAh) can then be calculated by the following equation: Where is the design energy demand (VAh) is the total load energy. etc. then this contingency can be ignored. derived from the load profile (VA) is a contingency for future load growth (%) is a design margin (%) It is common to make considerations for future load growth (typically somewhere between 5 and 20%).Where is the design load apparent power (VA) is the peak load apparent power. a design margin of 10% to 15% is recommended. the total energy (in terms of VAh) can be computed by finding the area underneath the load profile curve (i. Given a future growth contingency of 10% and a design margin of 10%. which is the area under the load profile (VAh) is a contingency for future load growth as defined above (%) is a design contingency as defined above (%) Example: From our simple example above. A design margin is used to account for any potential inaccuracies in estimating the loads. the design load is: VA Design Energy Demand The design energy demand is used for sizing energy storage devices. the design energy demand is: VAh . If no future loads are expected. Example: From our simple example above. integrating instantaneous power with respect to time over the autonomy or 24h period). the total load energy from the load profile is 2. Typically. but this may also depend on Client preferences. less-than-optimum operating conditions due to improper maintenance. to allow future loads to be supported.e. the peak load apparent power is 640VA.680VAh. From the load profile.
