    Abstract

    Building on recent unsupervised Non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM) algorithms that use graph Laplacian regularization (GLR) and achieve state-of-the-art performance, in this paper, we propose a novel unsupervised approach to design an underlying graph to model the correlation within time-series smart meter measurements. We propose a variable-length data segmentation approach to extract potential events, assign all measurements associated with an identified event to each graph node, employ dynamic time warping to define the adjacency matrix of the graph, and propose a robust cluster labeling approach. Our simulation results on four different datasets show up to 10% improvement in classification performance over competing approaches.
