TLO mimics the behavior of the students in improving their performance through gaining the knowledge from the teacher and interacting with other students. The proposed model requires per capita GDP and population and offers the forecast of sector-wise electrical energy demand. The comparisons of the results with that of RM exhibit the effectiveness of the proposed model.
