Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring (NILM) analyzes power usage levels from the Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC) metering point to identify when individual loads (such as lights, pumps, cooling units, fans, computers, refrigerator) are operating; to estimate the energy consumption of compressor, pump and fan loads; and to estimate the amount of heat rejected into the surrounding environment. The NILM supports two areas of research: automated fault detection and diagnostics (FDD) and Urban Heat Island measurement and mitigation measures.
