Abstract

This paper assesses the performance of a technique for estimating the power consumption of individual devices based on aggregate consumption. The new semi-Markov technique, outperforms pure hidden Markov models on the REDD dataset. The technique also exploits information from transients to eliminate a substantial fraction of the observed errors.
