Monitoring of energy consumption using Coded Power Radio
Project outside the universityPhilips Research, Eindhoven
An alternative approach, which has been successfully explored in the Coded Power project at Philips Research, is to measure the total electric current and voltage at a central location in the network, and to disaggregate the current into the contributions of individual appliances or groups of appliances. This appears to be feasible (at least to some extent), because each appliance, or class of appliances, has a characteristic current and/or power profile. A good disaggregation algorithm makes use of techniques from
- Signal processing
- Multi-user detection
- Event detection
- Pattern recognition
- Database management
AssignmentPhilips Research is looking for an MSc student to help them in setting up a simulation environment for testing and combining various algorithms.
RequirementsThe candidate is a Master's student in Electrical Engineering, with a solid signal processing and/or telecommunication background. Knowledge of Matlab is required. Good spoken and written English is a must. Expected project duration is 6-9 months.
The project is carried out at Philips Research, High Tech Campus 34, Eindhoven (ir. Ying Wang)
