Isolation Forest to detect anomalies in time series data

Learn to detect anomalies in time series with Python, using advanced techniques and Machine Learning algorithms.

Based on the energy generation bids recorded by EOLICA AUDAX (ADXVD04) in the OMIE market during 2023, this article presents an analysis of anomalies in the time series.
