Abstract: Electricity forecasting is an important engineering application.In order to solve the accuracy problem of dynamical granular support vector regression machine for power load forecasting (DGSVRM),this paper proposes a hybrid algorithm of glowworm swarm optimization (GSO) and pattern search (PS) to optimize the key parameters of DGSVRM forecasting model.Simulation results show that the prediction accuracy is greatly improved by optimizing the parameters of the prediction model.

Key words: Dynamical granular support vector regression machine, Glowworm swarm optimization, Pattern search algorithm
