Performance evaluation of techniques for identifying abnormal energy consumption in buildings

The IEEE Access Journal has published our paper on anomaly detection. Titled Performance evaluation of techniques for identifying abnormal energy consumption in buildings, with co-authors Megha Gaur, Ivan V. Bajic, and Angshul Majumdar. Here is the paper abstract: Energy consumption in buildings has steadily increased. Buildings consume more energy than necessary due to suboptimal design and … Continue reading Performance evaluation of techniques for identifying abnormal energy consumption in buildings

Investigating the Switch Continuity Principle Assumed in Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM)

My paper about the Switch Continuity Principle in NILM has been accepted at the 29th Annual IEEE Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (CCECE 2016). Here is the abstract: Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM) researchers have always assumed the switch continuity principle (SCP), which assumes that only one appliance ever changes state at any given point in … Continue reading Investigating the Switch Continuity Principle Assumed in Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM)
