Tabular results may be displayed in three different forms, i actual values, forecasts, errors and error metrics for each time series and each forecasting step separately; ii overall error metrics for one time series but many methods altogether to do fast comparisons; and iii Diebold-Mariano test, sign test and Wilcoxon signed-rank test for testing statistical significant differences among several forecasting methods [ 41 , 42 ].

Not all the capabilities of the toolbox are shown in these examples, due to space restrictions. The documentation shows a wide range of thorough examples, run step-by-step with their respective coding, covering all the models and tools available in ECOTOOL. There, the implementation is shown deploying the code necessary to run the examples, together with the output produced.

The three forecasting cases shown below are designed following some common rules. They are rolling forecasting experiments in which the training in-sample data length, the testing out-of-sample data length, and the forecast origin are fixed initially depending on the properties of each dataset. The first round of forecasts with all the appropriate models is run and forecasted and the corresponding actual values stored.

Then, the window is moved several samples ahead and all the forecasts are produced again with the models identified and estimated with the most recent information. This updating step is repeated to the end of the data. This exhaustive evaluation of forecasting performance of each model is completed with the help of two error metrics that have proven very useful in many applications and are free from some inconveniences, namely the symmetric Mean Absolute Percentage Error sMAPE and the Mean Absolute Scaled Error MASE , see Eqs 8 and 9 and [ 43 , 44 ].

The MASE metric compares the out-of-sample performance of the model with the in-sample performance of a simple seasonal RW see Table 1 , i. It consists of sixty years of monthly data collected from March to May The data show a growing trend during the full period associated with long run emissions and a seasonal component rather stable related to the global net uptake and release of CO 2 in summer and winter.

The upward trend and the seasonal variations may be also checked out by either the pseudo-periodogram pseudo because the time series is not mean-stationary or the AR pseudo-spectrum available in the toolTEST GUI tool not shown here to save space. Clear peaks appear for zero frequency related to the trend and the seasonal periods 12 and 6 samples per cycle.

The rest of harmonics do not show up. The next listing shows how to load the data, select the raw CO 2 data stored in the fifth column of the matrix data downloaded from the official web page , avoid the first two years of monthly observations, select months after that and select two parameters that will be used later on, namely the number of forecasts nofs and the seasonal period s.

The last line is useful for those users who want to try the variance stabilizing Box-Cox transformation of the data applied to the first months. In particular:. The next listing shows how the previous models may be run for the first months of the data see details on how to use these functions in the toolbox documentation. Mind that the syntax for all models are very similar and that the first input to modelAUTO is the time series without Box-Cox transformation because such change is tested inside this particular function.

The output variables m1 to m5 are MATLAB structures with all the relevant information about the model output, like residuals, forecasts, etc. This model is perfectly supported by the Simple and Partial Autocorrelation functions for the differenced data shown in Fig 2. It certainly shows that the MA terms are essential to avoid over parameterisation if only AR terms are used, since finite order MA models are theoretically equivalent to infinite order AR models, as in [ 14 ].

Fig 2 is the result of the following code, though it can also be produced by toolTEST. Next listing shows how to produce such outputs in the original scale of the variable. This requires to undo the Box-Cox transformation on the model forecasts, stored in field. The forecast exercise consists of a rolling out experiment in which the initial forecast origin is chosen at observations from the beginning March and the forecast horizon is 24 months ahead.

Then, one month is added to the sample and the whole process is repeated to the end of the sample. Therefore, total rounds of 24 months-ahead forecasts from all models are produced. The average forecasting performance of all models used are shown in Table 4. Table 4 offers some interesting insights into the forecasting issue of the Mauna Loa data. Firstly, forecasts deteriorate with the horizon for all models, as expected.

Thirdly, all errors are very small implying that the series can be forecast with great accuracy take, for example, the Airline model that produces an average sMAPE of only 0. However, that is not the case for 24 steps ahead, where the best model is Auto , instead. One single trend is visible because, though they are not exactly the same, both are consistent.

The data is continuously updated from 29 June Fig 4 shows a portion of such data, from 1 January to 12 June These data are characterised by a number of periodic components superimposed that have to be dealt with, if a comprehensive model wants to be fitted. Firstly, the data exhibits a clear annual cycle with two peaks in winter and summer, respectively, closely related to temperatures.

Secondly, a strong diurnal cycle, with different profiles depending on the season of the year. Thirdly, a weekly cycle is present with lower demand during weekends, mainly due to the absence of industrial activity. Finally, the data is affected by a number of special days, special events, moving festivals and holidays, etc. In general, it is common to avoid modelling the year cycle for short term forecasting with hourly data, for several reasons: i the most important drivers of the data in the short run are the daily and weekly cycle, while the annual cycle would become of paramount importance for longer horizons from one week onwards ; ii it is parametrically unfeasible and much research should be conducted if trivial extensions of existing models want to be avoided.

The problem is that the annual cycle holds 8, hours and a trivial extension of models to take into account the periodic behaviour would involve 4, harmonics. One way to tackle with these problems is with the aid of time aggregation techniques, e. As far as the author is concerned, this is the first time that an automatic algorithm is developed for such complex cases. Certainly, in this case the model is composed of the multiplication of three ARMA factors, namely regular, daily and weekly seasonals.

The general specification is in Eq 10 , with the same nomenclature of Eq 1. Therefore, the airline model will be kept as a benchmark to compare with. All models were estimated and used to forecast a week ahead along a full year from July to June with a rolling forecast origin every 6 hours and samples of 8 weeks length. Thence, 1, rounds of hours-ahead forecasts were calculated with each model. The window size 8 weeks allow the models to adapt for the changing profile of the seasonal components over the year.

A full year of data was reserved as the test set to give a better overall idea of forecasting performance, since such performance varies with the season of the year. Some relevant observations follow. Firstly, the forecast performance deteriorates with the forecast horizon for all methods. Secondly, the Auto method is the best for all horizons when compared with Airline , meaning that the automatic identification implemented in ECOTOOL makes sense in terms of forecasting performance.

Thirdly, Auto is better than AR as well, implying that including moving average terms in the models pays back in terms of forecasting performance. This latter observation means that standard time series models focus on short-term horizons and more sophisticated extensions should be provided for longer horizons. One clear extension would be to add the annual cycle into the models, since it could be the case that for horizons long enough the lack of a annual cycle starts to be felt.

One final point worth considering is that the optimal forecasts of the Mauna Loa data in the previous case study are systematically much more accurate than the electricity demand forecasts, because of a much greater level of uncertainty in the latter case. This point may be checked by comparing Table 4 with the appropriate rows in Table 5 , bearing in mind that 12 and 24 hours ahead in Table 5 corresponds to 1 and 2 years in Table 4 , respectively.

The original dataset consisted of 18 years of GHI hourly observations. Fig 6 shows an overview of the last year of data that shows clearly the annual cycle and the variability among different days, sometimes weeks, depending mainly on the cloud cover. One typical feature of the data is that GHI drops down to zero every night at different times within the day depending on the sunrise and sunset times.

Consequently, the time series contains numerous zeros deterministically located along the year. In winter there are just 10 sun hours, while in summer the Sun shines for up to 16 hours. An efficient way to deal with this singularity of the data is removing such zeros before the modelling stage and inserting them back to build the final forecast for full days.

In this way, at each forecast origin the periodicity of the data is different, depending on the time of the year. Due to this peculiarity, the data is rather heteroscedastic along the year. This problem may be alleviated by the Box-Cox transformation, that in ECOTOOL is implemented in the function vboxcox that may be run directly or by a menu option within toolTEST , in which the optimal lambda is estimated following the model-independent approach by [ 33 ].

Lambda turned up to be close to 0 in most cases, meaning that the optimal transformation is the natural logarithm. Fig 7 illustrates the convenience of these two transformations. Top panel shows two months of the original data, while the bottom panel shows the data in logs and after zero-removal. The sample length is drastically reduced only 10 samples per day out of 24 remained in the case shown and the natural logarithm transformation renders a time series with proper statistical properties, at least regarding homoskedasticity.

This case, unlike electricity demand, is not multi-seasonal, since only a diurnal period is observed on top of an annual cycle. The annual cycle is ignored because models used are sensible strictly for short run forecasting see discussion on this issue in the previous case study. Then, the methods used in this case are the ones already used in the Mauna Loa case, but with time varying periods due to the zero values removal.

To illustrate ECOTOOL working on this data, the rolling experiment is conducted by selecting samples of 2 months of data previous to each forecasting origin. One week ahead of data is forecast at each step and the forecast origin is moved 6 hours forward. The evaluation is repeated along a full year of data, i. Indeed, inspection of Eq 8 shows this is one of few particular cases where sMAPE is not defined because both forecasts and actual values are zero.

Cases like this highlights the utility of other metrics, like MASE that may be still be computed. Results are reported in Table 6 , showing clearly that the GHI data is less forecastable than the previous cases. The main reason for this is that all the MASE measurements are much bigger now. As an example, the Auto model renders MASE values that are about twice the electricity case and almost four times the Mauna Loa case for 12 steps ahead forecasts.

But still, this confusing evidence should not distract from other type of evidence. Firstly, for horizons shorter than 9 hours the best method is Auto. Finally, Airline and Auto outperforms AR for any forecast horizon. This paper has introduced ECOTOOL, a toolbox intended mainly for professional practitioners, academic researchers, students, and anyone involved in the analysis of time series, forecasting or signal processing.

ECOTOOL is composed of a number of powerful functions to estimate a wide range of models in a rather user friendly manner; with abundant tools for identification, validation and graphical representation of results.

Several properties are the salient features of the toolbox, e. The toolbox also provides a wide range of descriptive information of the data, both graphically and in tabular format; standard and not so standard identification tools; formal and visual tests for gaussianity, independence, causality, heteroscedasticity, non-linearity, unit root and cointegration; spectral tools; tests on forecasting performance; etc. Though many of the procedures implemented may be found in other software packages, some of them are exclusive to ECOTOOL, to the author knowledge.

It is the case of the automatic identification of multi seasonal ARIMA models, automatic detection of outliers in Unobserved Components and Exponential Smoothing models, and the possibility of estimating Unobserved Components and Exponential Smoothing models by Exact Maximum Likelihood adding inputs specified as dynamic transfer functions.

The toolbox is shown working on three case studies, in which several methods are tested on forecasting time series with different sampling interval and degrees of complexity, namely the monthly CO 2 concentration data at Mauna Loa, hourly electricity demand in Spain, and hourly global horizontal irradiation at a photovoltaic plant in Ciudad Real, Spain. Results show clearly that forecastability depends strongly on the case, being the global irradiation the worst case to forecast.

In all cases, the automatic procedure of identification of ARIMA models shows great potentiallity as a general tool in forecasting tasks and including moving average terms in ARIMA models increases forecast accuracy.

Introduction The rapid development of Information and Communication Technologies has open the door to the use of massive amounts of data in virtually any area of science and industry. Open in a separate window.

Toolbox overview ECOTOOL is user oriented in the sense that the coding effort demanded from the user is reduced to a minimum at the cost of the programmer elaborating long and comprehensive functions. Extensive and detailed documentation is available. All functions are provided with a thorough help accessible in the usual way.

Eleven detailed demos with extensive explanations that show all the properties of the toolbox are also provided accessed by ECOTOOLdemos. The design of the toolbox is such that it is possible to perform a full time series analysis with just a few MATLAB instructions. In this way, the memory effort demanded from the user is reduced to a minimum.

In addition, function names are selected following mnemonic rules such that they are easy to remember and easy to look for. Specification of models is rather simple and flexible. All functions for estimation of models, i. Besides, in the case of modelTF for TF or ARIMA model estimation and forecasting, the way the models are specified is in fact very similar to its analytical expression according to Eqs 1 and 2.

Conditional ML is always used as a mean to obtain initial conditions for exact estimation, but it is convenient when the model involves very long time series or it is very complex, as is the case of models with multiple seasonal factors or many parameters.

The procedure follows this reference except in the way differencing orders are identified. In particular, instead of relying on formal unit root tests, ECOTOOL selects difference orders by minimizing the variance of the resulting time series.

This discrepancy is introduced due to many problems detected with formal unit root tests when applied to real time series. In addition, the automatic method is expanded to multi-seasonal models, making ECOTOOL the unique piece of software that implements this procedure, to the author knowledge.

They are modeled as particular TFs applied to impulse dummy variables. In particular, they may be estimated by exact ML, may include inputs as transfer functions and automatic detection of outliers may be carried out. The estimation output of any sort of models is rather exhaustive in tabular form. Such tables show parameter values with their standard errors and T tests, information criteria, correlation among parameters and, in the case of TF and ARIMA models, warnings about problems with unit roots in either numerator or denominator polynomials.

Descriptive information: time plots, box plots, scatter plots, descriptive statistics, histograms, formal Gaussianity tests [ 23 , 24 ]. Integration and cointegration tests: Dickey-Fuller and Perron unit root tests, Johansen cointegration tests [ 34 — 36 ]. Non-linearity tests: [ 26 , 37 — 39 ], Schwarz criterion on squares. Frequency domain tools: cumulative periodogram, smoothed or raw periodogram, AR-spectrum [ 16 , 40 ]. Fig 1. The architecture of the model is maintained along the whole experiment, but the parameters are updated at each step.

Dear Alberto, t I read some documents on Arima forecast. But I can not use dynamic forecast for more than one point of time out-of-sample. Fortunately, I randomly found your thread. The problem is I use tsappend,add as you mentioned in your advice. However, dynamic prediction only gives me one-step ahead predicted value that means only the predicted value of m1 will be created. What should I do to fix it? Thank you in advance!

Amir Sadeghi. Thong, I saw your email when I was looking for an answer for my question. Dear Amir, Thank you very much for your help. However, I solved the problem for a while ago. Previous Next. Yes No. For the purpose of this example, we will estimate the two cases, so later on we can compare and decide which model is better. We can see that lags 1 exceed the confidence bands. We will estimate both in stage 2, and decide which model is better.

Once we have identified possible ARIMA models candidates, we need to estimate them and decide which model is the most appropriate. The two models we decided to estimate are:. Next we can produce the selection criteria output which will provide us some useful information to compare the models. To select the most appropriate model, I recommend you to do a table like the one below, and fill the information with the data we obtained in the previous section estimated ARIMA models.

We identified possible models and estimated them in stage 2. We also selected the most appropriate model based on diverse criterions. Now it is time to ensure the model satisfies the requirementes to forecast and predict future values! We need to ensure that the residuals of the model are White Noise. We check it with the Portmanteau Test.

Therefore, the residuals are white noise. We can see in the figure above that all the inverse roots lie inside the unit circle. We are in a good spot now to forecast future values of the consumer price index. If the model you had selected did not satisfy the stability condition, you would need to repeat stage 2 and 3 again, and find another suitable possible candidate. Elevate your learning experience. You can buy the package for each of the tutorials. ARIMA models can only be estimated using stationary variables.

In other words, how many times you need to differentiate the variable to become stationary. If your variables are stationary, you will be estimating an ARMA model. There is no need to apply differences. ARIMA models are univariate models.

In other words, you are using past information to predict future information. For example: If I know what marks you got in your last 10 exams, I can use that past information to predict your future mark. They are simple models and an effective way to forecast future stocks value. However, it always works better for short-run predictions. The more ahead in time we predict, there are more chances of getting inaccurate results. Some variables have a seasonal element.

It is common when predicting hydro consumption, that in summer the consumption spikes. You will be able to identify the Seasonal component by looking at the AC column in the correlogram.
