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

Electricity, water, and natural gas consumption of a residential house in Canada from 2012 to 2014

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

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

AMPds: A Public Dataset for Load Disaggregation and Eco-Feedback Research

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

Inspiring Energy Conservation Through Open Source Power Monitoring and In-Home Display

I just learnt that that my full co-authored (with co-author Fred Popowich, TaeJin Moon, and Bob Gill) paper “Inspiring Energy Conservation Through Open Source Power Monitoring and In-Home Display” was accepted at the IEEE Power and Energy Society General Meeting.  It will be held in Vancouver so I will not need to travel! Here is the paper abstract: Many homeowners and occupants are interested in… Read More
