REFIT: Electrical Load Measurements (Cleaned)

Dataset

Description

The REFIT Electrical Load Measurements dataset includes cleaned electrical consumption data in Watts for 20 households at aggregate and appliance level, timestamped and sampled at 8 second intervals. This dataset is intended to be used for research into energy conservation and advanced energy services, ranging from non-intrusive appliance load monitoring, demand response measures, tailored energy and retrofit advice, appliance usage analysis, consumption and time-use statistics and smart home/building automation.

When using this dataset please cite the following paper in Scientific Data, http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/sdata.2016.122


This version of the dataset has been cleaned in the following ways:
- Timestamp duplicates have been merged.
- IAM (Individual Appliance Monitor) readings set to 0 Watts if above 4000 Watts (above the rated limit of the sensor).
- Each IAM has been processed to ensure that it only shows readings for one appliance, where possible.
- The ReadMe file has been updated with information about monitored appliance changes.
- NaN values have been forward filled (< 2 minute gaps) or zeroed (> 2 minute gaps).

This work has been carried out as part of the REFIT project (`Personalised Retrofit Decision Support Tools for UK Homes using Smart Home Technology', Grant Reference EP/K002368/1/1). REFIT is a consortium of three universities - Loughborough, Strathclyde and East Anglia - and ten industry stakeholders funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) under the Transforming Energy Demand in Buildings through Digital Innovation (BuildTEDDI) funding programme.

A raw data version of this dataset (deposited 23/09/2015) is also available from the Data Sets link below.
