A message from my good friend and colleague Jack Kelly: Source: A competition for energy disaggregation algorithms | Jack Kelly Now that I’ve (finally!) submitted my PhD thesis, I can focus on designing and implementing a competition for energy disaggregation algorithms. EDF Energy have kindly given me post-doc funding from now until the end of… Read More
Today my latest journal paper was published in Nature’s Scientific Data. Titled Electricity, water, and natural gas consumption of a residential house in Canada from 2012 to 2014 it discusses the release of AMPds v2. Thanks to my co-authors Bradley Ellert, Ivan V. Bajic, and Fred Popowich for all their contributions and feedback. Here is the paper… Read More
Last night I stumbled upon Harvard Dataverse. I decided to sign up and upload one of my early datasets. This dataset 2010 ZigBee Sensor Data Collected From a House (in Vancouver, Canada) Dataset contains power meter, ambient light, and ambient temperature sensors readings; including weather and daylight data. Sensor readings are at 15 minute intervals for about 8… Read More
I have just added a new archive that contains the weather data for AMPds. Go to AMPds.org to download the file. You can use the same password for the dataset. Cheers!
Today I am releasing AMPds 2 (The Almanac of Minutely Power Dataset – 2 Years) a new version of my internationally recognized and very popular dataset. AMPds is a dataset consisting of electricity, water, and natural gas consumption. This dataset is ideal for testing load disaggregation/NILM and eco-feedback algorithms and prototypes. A total of 1,051,200 readings for 2 years of… Read More
I decided to update my NILM research website today. I added my NILM publications. Hopefully in the next month I can add some algorithm accuracy results to the website, too. One other thing to note is that come April 1 (2014) I will be making available a second year’s worth of data for AMPds. I… Read More
Last week I learnt that that my full co-authored (with co-author Fred Popowich, Lyn Bartram, Bob Gill, and Ivan Bajic) paper “AMPds: A Public Dataset for Load Disaggregation and Eco-Feedback Research” was accepted at IEEE‘s Annual Electrical Power and Energy Conference (EPEC 2013). So I will be travelling to Halifax, Nova Scotia in the Canada. Here is the paper abstract: A home-based intelligent energy conservation system needs to… Read More
