This paper deals with H∞ filter-based short-term electric load prediction taking into consideration the characteristics of the load curve. We propose a predictive method to forecast the future electric load demand for 36 h from 12:00 PM, and evaluate the peak and bottom of the load curves on the next day. We propose a load model, estimate the unknown parameters of the model by means of an H∞ filter using the data separated for nonworking days and weekdays, with the same pattern of the previous data chosen and assigned to the model parameters. The simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed prediction methodology.
