Electricity sector in Iraq has confronted many troubles and fences which have a great effect on the development and upgrading of this sector. Such problems involve the increasing of the electrical load demand after 2003 and appearance of peak loads causing the electricity generation deficit. Various factors have led to this situation, such as the international blockade on Iraq, limited investments, consecutive wars, security issues and many others. This study presents electrical load demand analysis of Baghdad city in Iraq during 2012-2014 for all consumption sectors (residential, commercial, industrial,…etc.). Also the electrical supply and load shedding are analyzed because they are related to the load demand. From analysis the electrical load profile, the increment in the loads demand is very low for 2014 when compared with 2012 and concluded that there are two electrical peak load periods, diurnal peak period in which smaller than the second period in which represented by nightly peak. Seasonally, the winter has no diurnal peak load and its nightly peak load is less than of that in the summery months. While, the electrical supply for Baghdad city is significantly increased for 2014 when compared with 2012, and this due to Iraqi ministry of electricity plans in the last years. As a result, the load shedding is noticeably decreased.
