This paper describes the end user load profile for distribution system planning. Load profiles of aggregate loads from residential, commercial and industrial class are analysed to determine comprehensive load indices such as load factor, coincident factor, etc. Additionally, average capacity factor of distribution transformers and probability distribution function of its peak demand with respect to the transformer capacity are also determined in the study. Results of the analysis provide useful inputs for more effective distribution planning.
