A competition for energy disaggregation algorithms | Jack Kelly

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

Load Disaggregation Based on Aided Linear Integer Programming

Today I found out that a journal paper I helped co-author with colleagues Md. Zulfiquar Ali Bhotto and Ivan V. Bajić. Titled Load Disaggregation Based on Aided Linear Integer Programming it will be published in journal IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II: Express Briefs. Here is the paper abstract: Load disaggregation based on aided linear integer programming (ALIP) is proposed.… Read More

NILM 2016 – Workshop Proceedings

Just an another quick note: I just released the final program and proceedings for NILM 2016. All accepted papers for presentations and posters can now be downloaded and read. The TPC has accepted 13 papers for presentation and will the have a poster session with 11+ posters. George W. Hart (credited as being the founder of NILM research)… Read More

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… Read More

NILM 2016 – Submit Your Paper & Register

The 3rd International Workshop on Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM) will be held in Vancouver, Canada from May 14 to 15, 2016. This year’s venue will be the beautiful mountain top campus of Simon Fraser University (SFU) which is located in the neighbouring municipality of Burnaby. Last workshop was held June/ 2014 at the University of… Read More

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… Read More

PhD Thesis Submitted for Examination

Well this morning at 9:00am I submitted my PhD Thesis for examination. Apparently the external examiner will write a report after reading it to determine if it is ready for the oral examination/defence. Here is the title, abstract, and keywords: REAL-TIME EMBEDDED LOW-FREQUENCY LOAD DISAGGREGATION      Understanding how the electrical appliances and devices in a house… Read More
