Daily load forecasting is essential to improve the reliability of the AC power line data network and provide optimal load scheduling in an intelligent home system. In this paper, a fuzzy-input-neural network forecaster model is proposed. This model combines a fuzzy system and a neural network. It can forecast the daily load accurately with respect to different day types under various variables. In this model, the fuzzy system performs a preprocessing for the neural network, so that the computational demand of the neural network can be reduced. Simulation results on a daily load forecasting will be given. Comparing the proposed algorithm with that of a conventional neural network, it can be shown that the proposed algorithm produces more accurate forecasting results.
