BC Hydro Collaboration on Disaggregation

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…

Cognitive Radio Technology: System Evolution

I just learnt that a paper that I helped co-author (with Joanna Wallace, Kyle Richardson and Bob Gill) titled “Cognitive Radio Technology: System Evolution” was accepted at the 4th International Conference On Wireless Networks and Embedded Systems (WECON) at Chitkara University in India from March 20–21, 2015. Here is the paper abstract: Cognitive Radio is a novel method of radio communication which enables more…

NILM performance evaluation code released

Today I have publicly released the functions used to measure the accuracy performance in my journal paper Nonintrusive load monitoring (NILM) performance evaluation: A unified approach for accuracy reporting in Springer’s Energy Efficiency Journal (DOI 10.1007/s12053-014-9306-2). The Python 3 code is available in my GitHub repository.

Nonintrusive Load Monitoring (NILM) Performance Evaluation: A unified approach for accuracy reporting

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…
