Non-intrusive appliance load monitoring is the process of disaggregating a household’s total electricity consumption into its contributing appliances. In this paper we propose an approach by which individual appliances can be iteratively separated from an aggregate load. Unlike existing approaches, our approach does not require training data to be collected(More)
Non-intrusive load monitoring, or energy disaggregation, aims to separate household energy consumption data collected from a single point of measurement into appliance-level consumption data. In recent years, the field has rapidly expanded due to increased interest as national deployments of smart meters have begun in many countries. However, empirically(More)
Non-intrusive appliance load monitoring is the process of breaking down a household’s total electricity consumption into its contributing appliances. In this paper we propose an approach by which individual appliances are iteratively separated from the aggregate load. Our approach does not require training data to be collected by sub-metering individual(More)
Monitoring the health of the elderly living independently in their own homes is a key issue in building sustainable healthcare models which support a country's ageing population. Existing approaches have typically proposed remotely monitoring the behaviour of a household's occupants through the use of additional sensors. However the costs and privacy(More)
Non-intrusive appliance load monitoring is the process of disaggregating a household’s total electricity consumption into its contributing appliances. In this paper we propose an unsupervised training method for non-intrusive monitoring which, unlike existing supervised approaches, does not require training data to be collected by sub-metering individual(More)
We present a system and study of personalized energy-related recommendation. AgentSwitch utilizes electricity usage data collected from users' households over a period of time to realize a range of smart energy-related recommendations on energy tariffs, load detection and usage shifting. The web service is driven by a third party real-time energy tariff API(More)
Non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM), or energy disaggregation, is the process of using signal processing and machine learning to separate the energy consumption of a building into individual appliances. In recent years, a number of data sets have been released in order to evaluate such approaches, which contain both building-level and appliance-level(More)
Non intrusive load monitoring (NILM), or energy disaggregation, is the process of separating the total electricity consumption of a building as measured at single point into the building’s constituent loads. Previous research in the field has mostly focused on residential buildings, and although the potential benefits of applying this technology to(More)
In this demonstration, we present an open source toolkit for evaluating non-intrusive load monitoring research; a field which aims to disaggregate a household's total electricity consumption into individual appliances. The toolkit contains: a number of importers for existing public data sets, a set of preprocessing and statistics functions, a benchmark(More)
