posted on 2019-10-25, 08:24 authored by Marcus Dekenah, Schalk Heunis

The Distribution Profile Mixer Tool is a software application for estimating the aggregate hourly load profile for consumers from different domestic consumer classes.

This software provides analysis of the impact of summated loads at given consumption levels, and using load models which have been derived from extensive research by the authors, using data collected during the course of the NRS Load Research Project since1995.

Typical use cases would be:

  • Total residential load on a feeder
  • Total residential load in an area
  • What-if scenarios for load planning

All these use cases assume that the consumers are in the same geographical area and the application does not allow mixture of consumers from different geographical areas.
