Abstract

This paper explores the relationship between inhabitants' presence, the installed power for office equipment, and the resulting electrical energy use. This exploration is based on long-term observational data obtained from a continuously monitored office area in Vienna, Austria. The findings facilitate the formulation of both simplified and probabilistic models to estimate annual and peak office plug loads. Aside from a general comparison of the performance of simple and stochastic models, the present contribution focuses on the question if and to which extent consideration of the diversity of the inhabitants influences the reliability of plug load predictions.
