Load represents the instantaneous amount of active power: Load brutto  = generation (brutto) + import – export – ABS (pumping) [MW]. Load includes own consumption by power plant auxiliary and network losses.

Basic time unit data defines the average minute power in MW. For “Hour” aggregation, average power is equal to energy in MWh. By agregation "Hour" is average load equal to energy [MWh], which is called "Consumption".
