Abstract

Due to the growing need for a detailed consumption information in the context of energy efficiency, different energy disaggregation, also called Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM), methods have been proposed. These methods may be subdivided into supervised and unsupervised approaches. Electrical appliance classification is one of the tasks a NILM system should perform. Depending on the chosen NILM approach, the classification task consists of either identifying the appliances or grouping them into clusters. In this paper, we present the results of appliance identification and clustering using the Controlled On/Off Loads Library (COOLL) dataset. We use novel features extracted from a recently proposed turn-on transient current model for both identification and clustering. The results show that the amplitude-related features of this model are the most suited for appliance identification (giving a classification rate (CR) of 98.57%) whereas the enveloperelated features are the most adapted for appliance clustering.
