This project applies Data Mining technology to the prediction of electric power system load forecast. It proposes a mining program of electric power load forecasting data based on the similarity of time series research, effectively overcoming the negative effects on the prediction results caused by the limited and incomplete data. It also illustrates a list of examples to prove that the conducted method is effective and efficient.
