On a Training-Less Solution for Non-Intrusive Appliance Load Monitoring Using Graph Signal Processing

Bochao Zhao, Lina Stankovic, Vladimir Stankovic
2016 IEEE Access  
Indeed, the majority of NALM approaches, supervised or unsupervised, require training to build appliance models, and are sensitive to appliance changes in the house, thus requiring regular re-training.  ...  The main idea is to build upon the emerging field of graph signal processing to perform adaptive thresholding, signal clustering, and pattern matching.  ...  Hidden Semi-Markov Model factorial structure, respectively.  ...
