    Novel Fractal-Based Features for Low-Power Appliances in Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring

    Anam Mughees1,2,*, Muhammad Kamran1,3

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.80, No.1, pp. 507-526, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.051820

    Abstract Non-intrusive load monitoring is a method that disaggregates the overall energy consumption of a building to estimate the electric power usage and operating status of each appliance individually. Prior studies have mostly concentrated on the identification of high-power appliances like HVAC systems while overlooking the existence of low-power appliances. Low-power consumer appliances have comparable power consumption patterns, which can complicate the detection task and can be mistaken as noise. This research tackles the problem of classification of low-power appliances and uses turn-on current transients to extract novel features and develop unique appliance signatures. A hybrid… More >

    A Review of NILM Applications with Machine Learning Approaches

    Maheesha Dhashantha Silva*, Qi Liu

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 2971-2989, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.051289

    Abstract In recent years, Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM) has become an emerging approach that provides affordable energy management solutions using aggregated load obtained from a single smart meter in the power grid. Furthermore, by integrating Machine Learning (ML), NILM can efficiently use electrical energy and offer less of a burden for the energy monitoring process. However, conducted research works have limitations for real-time implementation due to the practical issues. This paper aims to identify the contribution of ML approaches to developing a reliable Energy Management (EM) solution with NILM. Firstly, phases of the NILM are discussed,… More >
