Electric load forecasting, as a basic requirement for the decision-making in power utilities, has been improved in various aspects in the past decades. Many factors may affect the accuracy of the load forecasts, such as data quality, goodness of the underlying model and load composition. Due to the strong correlation between the input variables (e.g., weather and calendar variables) and the load, the quality of input data plays a vital role in forecasting practices. Even if the forecasting model were able to capture most of the salient features of the load, a low quality input data may result in inaccurate forecasts. Most of the data cleansing efforts in the load forecasting literature have been devoted to the load data. Few studies focused on weather data cleansing for load forecasting. This research proposes an anomaly detection method for the temperature data. The method consists of two components: a load-based temperature prediction model and a detection technique. The effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated through two case studies: one based on the data from the Global Energy Forecasting Competition 2014, and the other based on the data published by ISO New England. The results show that by removing the detected observations from the original input data, the final load forecast accuracy is enhanced.
