Abstract Estimation of end-use load impacts plays an important role in effective power distribution in a smart grid. The used standard load curves do not correspond to the real load curves precisely. This research deals with power load curves obtained from the smart meters and standard load curves currently used in Latvia. New smart meters are installed, which give the opportunity to follow the hourly electricity consumption and there is a chance to keep up with the price of electricity in the market, thus reducing the payment for the consumed electricity. Solutions are evaluated in the paper how to increase precision of the required load.
