Distribution Transformer Load Demand Algorithm

Develop an algorithm by which peak summer distribution transformer kVA demand of existing loads can be predicted based on monthly kWh usage patterns, climatological data, and customer demographics. The expected application of this algorithm is identifying excessively overloaded transformers for replacement, and to determine if an existing transformer has available capacity to serve a new load.
