Non-intrusive load monitoring is an attractive approach to obtain the energy consumption information without monitoring every device in a building. The main difficulty in the problem is to disaggregate the total power into the power used by specific devices. To solve the problem, this paper proposes an event-based scheme, in which the events corresponding to the appliance on or off are detected and then the events corresponding to the operation of a single device are matched. Finally, the

The experiments are tested on the REDD dataset and the results are compared with the available algorithm, which verifies the validity of the algorithm.
