In a deregulated electricity market where consumers can prepare bidding plans and purchase electricity directly from supplies, consumers can expect the price to fluctuate based on the demand. The consumers can also make economic beneficial decision to use electricity when the price is low. In this context, accurate forecast of the electricity price enable the consumers to plan and make such decisions. This paper proposes a methodology to forecast day-ahead electricity pricing using extreme learning machine. An artificial neural network forecasting model enables inputs variables that affect the output variable. The forecasting model is implemented in MATLAB/Simulink software. The proposed methodology is compared with a simple moving average model, and empirical evidence shows that the proposed methodology has a higher accuracy.
