Electric Load forecasting plays major role in satisfying equality constraints at generation side. At transmission side if load forecasting is not proper then high load current may flow through the conductors, which may lead to damage of conductors. At distribution also load forecasting is necessary because at higher load, high current will flow through the conductors and hence through the equipment. With proper load forecasting at distribution side cost can also be reduced in educational

For estimation of load, linear regression technique has been applied. The load data has been collected from the energy meter reading of the substation. After application of linear regression to the load data obtained, it is found that the coefficients are found to be 2.197 and 7008.44. A graph has been plotted for both forecasted and actual output with respect to time.
