This work studies how to apply support vector machines in order to forecast the energy consumption of buildings. Usually, support vector regression is implemented using the sequential minimal optimisation algorithm. In this work, an alternative version of that algorithm is used to reduce the execution time. Several experiments were carried out taking into account data measured during one year. The weather conditions were used as independent variables and the consumed amount of electricity was considered as the parameter to predict.

Abstract

This work studies how to apply support vector machines in order to forecast the energy consumption of buildings. Usually, support vector regression is implemented using the sequential minimal optimisation algorithm. In this work, an alternative version of that algorithm is used to reduce the execution time. Several experiments were carried out taking into account data measured during one year. The weather conditions were used as independent variables and the consumed amount of electricity was considered as the parameter to predict. The model has been trained using the first six months of the dataset whereas it was validated using the following three months and tested taking into account the last three months of measurements. From obtained results, a good performance of the model is observed.
