Introduction to Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring
The ultimate aim of Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM) is to
estimate the energy consumed by individual
appliances from just the whole-house aggregate meter signal.
In other words, it produces an (estimated) itemised energy bill using just a single, whole-house power meter.
This process is sometimes called:
- "non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM)"
- "non-intrusive appliance load monitoring (NALM or NIALM)"
- "electriciy disaggregation"
- "energy disaggregation"
- "smart meter disaggregation"
