Detecting the rate of growing electrical energy loads using SCADA

Document Type : Research Paper


Electrical Department, Faculty of Engineering, Razi University, Kermanshah, Iran


In this research, models of electrical loads were developed after transferring the data of the substations by using the SCADA system and calculating the electrical loads accurately for a period of 24 months taking into consideration the high and low weather temperatures in Babil Governorate in 2016 and 2020 and indicating the amount of growing loads Electricians and finding ways to handle control or reduce the value of this growth, especially since the poor consumption of electric energy causes great financial losses in light of the economic crisis that rocked the world countries.
