Dataset on Hourly Load Profiles for a Set of 24 Facilities from Industrial, Commercial, and Residential End-use Sectors
This dataset contains the hourly load profiles over a year (8760 hours data) for a set of 24 representative facilities from various end-use sectors, including industrial, commercial, and residential consumers. The dataset includes six reference buildings adopted from EnergyPlus reference buildings, which are publically available and has been cited here (see the references section in this dataset), and eighteen simulated buildings adapted to the state of New Jersey, U.S., climate zone by employing our physics-based building simulator, which is an EnergyPlus-based tool capable of capturing the buildings functionalities. This dataset can be used to model both single and multi-nodes energy systems such as nanogrids, microgrids, or any integrated systems in the distribution networks where each building is defined by its load profile reflecting its electricity consumption behavior. In fact, this dataset aids researchers and practitioners from all over the world to model their defined/modified test systems which enable them to conduct a broad range of studies addressing various engineering, economic, and environmental analyses.
