Domestic power data recorded by Jack Kelly 2011-2012 This dataset contains data from two houses: "JerninghamRd" and "BellendenRd". This dataset isn't especially useful for NILM work yet because I don't have a "ground truth" record of each appliance's state change. This will change when I install my 24 individual appliance monitors (see the "future plans" section below.) Each house contains a "wattsUp" folder and a "currentCost" folder: WATTSUP FOLDER ============== The "wattsUp" folder contains individual appliance data recorded using a WattsUp meter . The WattsUp records at a sample rate of 1Hz. It can record a number of parameters including voltage, power and power factor. Most of the files in the wattsUp folder are CSV files with just a single column recording power. A few of the files in the wattsUp folder also include other parameters (the first row of these files provides human-readable names for these parameters). CURRENTCOST FOLDER ================== The "currentCost" folder contains whole-house, aggregate data recorded using a CurrentCost EnviR home energy monitor . This records apparent power once every six seconds (although occasionally the EnviR drops a sample). These files contain two columns: the first column is the UNIX timestamp and the second column is the power reading. The files in BellendenRd/currentCost are named in chronological order. Typically there is a gap of about a day between files. The whole-house CurrentCost data for BellendenRd is also available on Cosm.com: https://cosm.com/feeds/49595 (the "currentCost" feed) CURRENTCOST INDIVIDUAL APPLIANCE MONITORS (IAMs) ================================================ One Weds 20th June 2012 I added three CurrentCost Individual Appliance Monitors  so file BellendenRd/currentCost/currentCostData23.dat onwards have three columns: * col1 is the Unix timestamp * col2 is the sensor number * col3 is the power reading See the README file in BellendenRd/currentCost for details of the mapping between sensor number and appliance name. FUTURE PLANS ============ On 22nd June 2012 I ordered 24 CurrentCost Individual Monitors (to monitor the power consumption of the majority of appliances in my home). I will also order an OpenEnergyMonitor  which should allow me to monitor voltage, real power and reactive power once a second for my entire house. A blog entry about these plans is available at: http://jack-kelly.com/monitoring_individual_appliances ABOUT & CONTACT =============== I am a PhD student at Imperial College's Department of Computing working on smart meter disaggregation.
