    Abstract

    Domestic energy usage patterns can be reduced to a series of classifications for power system analysis or operational purposes, generalizing household behavior into particular load profiles without noise induced variability. However, with AMI data transmissions over wireless networks becoming more commonplace data losses can inhibit classification negating the benefits to the operation of the power system as a whole. Here, an approach allowing incomplete load profiles to be classified while maintaining less than a 10% classification error with up to 20% of the data missing is presented.
