Concluding Remarks

The reader should note that the underlying statistical and optimization model is quite "responsive and robust." That is, the underlying methodology can be used in, or adapted to, a variety of demand profiles and rates, while the results remain relatively valid. A forthcoming paper by this author will show how to adapt the linear load- duration models of Figures 1 and 2 to more complex demand profiles. Thus, for example, one typical case is when the electrical load is represented by a Gauss or normal distribution. Also, we will show how to apply equation [9] to more involved industrial cases with multiple billing seasons and demand rates.
