Non-intrusive load monitoring and its challenges in a NILM system framework

  With the increasing of energy demand and electricity price, researchers gain more and more interest among the residential load monitoring. In order to feed back the individual appliance’s energy consumption instead of the whole-house energy consumption, non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM) is a good choice for residents to respond the time-of-use price and achieve electricity saving. In this paper, we discuss the system framework of NILM and analyse the challenges in every module. Besides, we study and compare the public datasets and accuracy metrics of non-intrusive load monitoring techniques.
