I don't know what that means. You have 3 input variables and 1 output variable.
An input-output pair consists of a 3-D input and the corresponding 1-D output?
100 such pairs make up a curve? But what constitutes "a" curve when you have 3 input variables? Are two inputs held constant and the curve consists of the output vs the one input that is varying? Or do you have 4 time series?...

Not clear.

Is this a time series?

I don't know. It is probably a time series. The only other possibility is sequential rather than batch learning.

So there are 13 networks? One for each "curve"? Again, what is plotted vs what for each curve?

My guess he had data for 26 curves, ordered them somehow and used every other one for
training.

I don't know. It looks like he designed 13 nets. Maybe inputs are presented to all 13 and the target that is closest to the output identifies the correspoding load condition.

That is my best guess.
