Abstract

Energy management systems strive to use energy resources efficiently, save energy, and reduce carbon output. This study proposes transient feature analyses of the transient response time and transient energy on the power signatures of non-intrusive demand monitoring and load identification to detect the power demand and load operation. This study uses the wavelet transform (WT) of the time-frequency domain to analyze and detect the transient physical behavior of loads during the load identification. The experimental results show the transient response time and transient energy are better than the steady-state features to improve the recognition accuracy and reduces computation requirements in non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM) systems. The discrete wavelet transform (DWT) is more suitable than short-time Fourier transform (STFT) for transient load analyses.
