Mixed-Integer Nonlinear Programming for State-based Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring

  title={Mixed-Integer Nonlinear Programming for State-based Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring},
  author={Marco Balletti and Veronica Piccialli and Antonio M. Sudoso},
Energy disaggregation, known in the literature as Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM), is the task of inferring the energy consumption of each appliance given the aggregate signal recorded by a single smart meter. In this paper, we propose a novel two-stage optimization-based approach for energy disaggregation. In the first phase, a small training set consisting of disaggregated power profiles is used to estimate the parameters and the power states by solving a mixed integer programming… Expand
