Title Peak Demand
Type number
Description Expected demand at the specified location at the time of the highest total demand for the nation.
Comment Winter Peak is a view of peak demand between the hours of 17:00 and 18:00 – typically November-February on a week day
Example 82.07
Unit MW

DemandAM

Title Minimum Demand (Summer Morning)
Type number
Description Expected demand at the specified location at the time of the lowest total demand for the nation
Comment Summer Minimum AM is a view of demand between 0500-0600, typically in June-August on a Summer Sunday morning.
Example 33.379
Unit MW

DemandPM

Title Minimum Demand (Summer Afternoon)
Type number
Description Expected demand at the specified location at the lowest summer afternoon national demand.
Comment Summer Minimum PM is a view of demand between 13:00-1400, typically June-August, Summer Sunday afternoon. This period is interesting to study as, whilst not being as low as the morning demand, high solar output will create a low demand on the transmission network.
Example 47.38
