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: What an algorithm can tell you about your energy consumption

Last night I attended the 2014 IEEE Vancouver Section Annual General Meeting. What an amazing event! Leo Del Castillo the General Manager of Xbox Devices at Microsoft was the keynote speaker talking about Xbox One. The Kinect sensor is amazing! My poster was displayed last night at the Poster Session. I tried with success to make the poster… Read More

Using Computing and Engineering to Tackle Sustainability Problems with Energy Consumption

Today I giving a technical seminar to the BCIT School of Energy faculty and students. My understanding is that a will be a large number of  people RSVP’ed. I will give a 40 minute presentation with a 10 minute Q&A session. My main focus will be on how faculty, students, and researchers for both computing and… Read More

NILM Workshop 2014

The NILM Workshop 2014 has been announced.  From the website: “The mission of this workshop is to create a forum that can unite all the researchers that are working on the topic of energy disaggregation. The main objective of this event is to review the main types of approaches that have been explored to date to… Read More

Inspiring Energy Conservation Through Open Source Metering Hardware and Embedded Real-Time Load Disaggregation

This morning I learnt that my full co-authored (with co-author William Sung, Ryan Dela Cruz, Brett Yarrow, Bob Gill, Fred Popowich,  and Ivan Bajic) paper “Inspiring Energy Conservation Through Open Source Metering Hardware and Embedded Real-Time Load Disaggregation” was accepted at IEEE‘s PES Asia-Pacific Power and Energy Engineering Conference (IEEE PES APPEEC 2013). So I am headed off to Hong Kong at the beginning of… Read More
