Last week I learnt that my journal paper co-authored Fred Popowich was accepted for publishing in Springer’s Energy Efficiency journal. It is currently in press and will hopeful be published within the next few months. Here is the paper abstract:
Nonintrusive load monitoring (NILM), sometimes referred to as load disaggregation, is the process of determining what loads or appliances are running in a house from analysis of the power signal of the whole-house power meter. As the popularity of NILM grows, we find there is no consistent way researchers are measuring and reporting accuracies. In this short communication, we present a unified approach that would allow for consistent accuracy testing.
Keywords: load disaggregation, accuracy, energy conservation, smart grid
