Load profiles for schools

For the planning of districts, the correct estimation of demand profiles is crucial. To properly account for seasonal and daily variations, annual profiles with hourly resolution are recommended.

Normalized demand profiles

In nPro, normalized demand profiles are used as the basis for creating annual profiles. In nPro, profiles for weekdays, Saturdays and Sundays are distinguished. The normalized profiles for the building type schools are shown in Figure 1.
