Competitive transactions resulting from recent restructuring of the electricity market, have made achieving a precise and reliable load forecasting, especially probabilistic load forecasting, an important topic. Hence, this paper presents a novel hybrid method of probabilistic electricity load forecasting, including generalized extreme learning machine for training an improved wavelet neural network, wavelet preprocessing and bootstrapping. In the proposed method, the forecasting model and data noise uncertainties are taken into account while the output of the model is the load probabilistic interval. In order to validate the method, it is implemented on the Ontario and Australian electricity markets data. Also, in order to remove the influence of model parameters and data on performance validation, Friedman and post-hoc tests, which are non-parametric tests, are applied to the proposed method. The results demonstrate the high performance, accuracy, and reliability of the proposed method.
