In this paper, the authors report the Typical Load Profile (TLP) of different types of consumers of distribution feeder which is based on clustering methods. Among many clustering methods, fuzzy c-means has been examined for determination of representative clusters because fuzzy logic is conceptually easy to understand. It is a well known clustering algorithm for typical load profiles determination. The results demonstrate that the proposed method is efficient for assigning Typical Load Profile (TLP) to the consumers. Moreover, the finding shows that the energy consumption can be clustered not only based on the load pattern but also load value.
