# Power Plant Energy Output Prediction: Weekend Hackathon #13

Weekend hackathons are fun, aren’t they! In our last weekend hackathon, we introduced a new and unique problem statement using UCI open dataset. But, we were big-time disappointed as some of the participants ended up probing the leaderboard. However, we decided to host an open UCI dataset competition again this weekend. So In this weekend hackathon, we have trained a machine learning model to perturb the target column instead of manually adding the noise. Yes, you heard it right, In this hackathon, we are challenging all the MachineHackers to capture our leaderboard and prove their mettle by competing against MachineHack’s AI.

The challenge will start on July 24th Friday at 6 pm IST.

# Problem Statement & Description

The dataset was collected from a Combined Cycle Power Plant over 6 years (2006-2011) when the power plant was set to work with a full load. Features consist of hourly average ambient variables Temperature (T), Ambient Pressure (AP), Relative Humidity (RH), and Exhaust Vacuum (V) to predict the net hourly electrical energy output (PE) of the plant.A combined-cycle power plant (CCPP) is composed of gas turbines (GT), steam turbines (ST), and heat recovery steam generators.

In a CCPP, the electricity is generated by gas and steam turbines, which are combined in one cycle, and is transferred from one turbine to another. While the Vacuum is collected from and has an effect on the Steam Turbine, the other three of the ambient variables affect the GT performance..

Given are 5 distinguishing factors that can predict the electrical energy output. Your objective as a data scientist is to build a machine learning model that can accurately predict the electrical energy output from various attributes.

#### Data Description:-

The unzipped folder will have the following files.

• Train.csv –  9568 rows x 5 columns
• Test.csv –  38272 rows x 4 columns
• Sample Submission – Sample format for the submission.

Target Variable: PE (electrical energy output)

#### The datasets will be made available for download on July 24th, Friday at 6 pm IST

Below are the file formats for the provided data
