I presented my thesis research and load disaggregation system to a group of people at BC Hydro today. This group was well versed in the area of disaggregation and even had implemented and tested Hart’s original algorithm. My presentation was well received and it looks like there will be some good collaboration opportunities. I will get a change to test uDisagg on their test homes and we work on using uDisagg in different areas (not concentrating on the home). Most of their test house data in 1, 15, and 60 minute intervals. I am quite excited!
