This research implemented a short-term power load forecasting model using a new deep learning framework called MindSpore. The new framework this research uses is more efficient than traditional deep learning frameworks such as TensorFlow. Firstly, the data is processed to meet the specific requirements of MindSpore. Subsequently, this research constructs the network architecture, comprising the LSTM layer, dropout layer, and fully connected layer. The effects of different parameters on the performance of the model are discussed in detail. The experiments unequivocally demonstrate the efficacy of the model in short-term power load forecasting.
