Abstract: This paper describes the theoretical foundation and prototype implementation of a transient event detector for use in a nonintrusive load monitor (NILM). The NILM determines the operating schedule of the major electrical loads in a building from measurements made at the electric utility service entry. The transient event detector extends the applicability of the NILM to challenging commercial and industrial sites. A spectral preprocessor for use in the transient event detector is introduced first. Then, the tr…
