A clustering module based on the k-means cluster analysis method was developed. Smart meter based residential load profiles were used to validate the clustering module. Several case studies were implemented using daily and segmented load profiles of individual and aggregated smart meters. Simulation results defined in terms of the relationship between the clustering ratio and the segmentation time window reveal that the minimum clustering ratio is obtained for the shortest time window of segmentation. Results also show that a small number of clusters is recommended for highly correlated load profiles.
