Frequency domain methods applied to forecasting electricity markets
AbstractThe changes taking place in electricity markets during the last two decades have produced an increased interest in the problem of forecasting, either load demand or prices. Many forecasting methodologies are available in the literature nowadays with mixed conclusions about which method is most convenient. This paper focuses on the modeling of electricity market time series sampled hourly in order to produce short-term (1 to 24Â h ahead) forecasts. The main features of the system are that (i) models are of an Unobserved Component class that allow for signal extraction of trend, diurnal, weekly and irregular components; (ii) its application is automatic, in the sense that there is no need for human intervention via any sort of identification stage; (iii) the models are estimated in the frequency domain; and (iv) the robustness of the method makes possible its direct use on both load demand and price time series. The approach is thoroughly tested on the PJM interconnection market and the results improve on classical ARIMA models.
