Daily peak load forecasting is critical for energy providers to meet the loads of grid-connected consumers. This study proposed a Seasonal Trend decomposition using Loess combined with Long Short-Term Memory (STL-LTSM) method and compared its performance on peak forecasting of electrical energy demand with Convolutional Neural Network and LSTM (CNN-LSTM), Wavenet, and the classic approaches Artificial Neural Network (ANN) and LSTM. The study evaluated the models using demand data from the power system in Tien Giang province, Vietnam, from 2020 to 2022, considering historical demand, holidays, and weather variables as input characteristics. The results showed that the proposed STL-LSTM model can predict future demand with lower Base Mean Square Error (RMSE) and Mean Absolute Percentage Error (MAPE). Therefore, the proposed method can help energy suppliers make smart decisions and plan for future demand.
