Various load disaggregation methods have been developed for monitoring home appliance loads to save energy in a smart home. Most of load disaggregation methods are designed to focus on the on/off events of single appliance. In reality, however, multiple appliances can be turned on/off simultaneously. Load disaggregation can be complicated by the simultaneous on/off events of multiple appliances. This paper presents a cepstrum-smoothing-based load disaggregation method to effectively deal with the simultaneous on/off events of multiple appliances. Further, a data acquisition system is developed to obtain only the characteristic signals of appliances and to filter the noise inputted from the power supply. Test results are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed cepstrumsmoothing- based load disaggregation method1.
