Improved Appliance Classification in Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring using Weighted Recurrence Plots and Convolutional Neural Networks.

This repository is the official implementation of Improved Appliance Classification in Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring using Weighted Recurrence Plots and Convolutional Neural Networks.. The paper present a recurrence graph feature representation that gives a few more values (WRG) instead of the binary output, which improves the robustness of appliance recognition. The WRG representation for activation current and voltage not only enhances appliance classification performance but also guarantees the appliance feature's uniqueness, which is highly desirable for generalization purposes.

We further, present a novel pre-processing procedure for extracting steady-state cycle activation current from current and voltage measurements. The pre-processing method ensures that the selected activation current is not a transient signal. Experimental evaluation in the three sub-metered datasets shows that the proposed WRG feature representation offers superior performance when compared to the V-I based image feature. We conduct evaluations on three sub-metered public datasets and comparing with the V-I image, which is its most direct competitor. We also conduct an empirical investigation on how different parameters of the proposed WRG influence classification performance
