Effect of daylight saving time on Bangladesh power systems
MetadataShow full item record
Load management is an usual practice to meet the increasing peak demand of electricity and is a common practice in western countries. Implementing daylight saving time (DST) is one option of Load Management which shifts the consumers demand from the peak to the off-peak period. Bangladesh has recently started the use of DST as a tool for Load Management practice. However, it has not yet been evaluated to determine how effective this practice is in our country. Does it really help use or worsen the already stretched out electric resources. The objective of the project is to evaluate the effectiveness of the DST on Bangladesh power system. To evaluate the effectiveness of Load Management model will be developed and the process will evaluated and data will be collected. Using these data a model will be formed along with some indices in order to quantify the effects.
