The electrical device’s fingerprint brings transparency

In the REALYSE project a measuring system has been developed that can detect from the household’s overall load curve which electrical devices are being used at any time. This is made possible by the consumption characteristics of electrical devices, which could be likened to the human fingerprint. In the future this measuring system should make it possible to identify devices which consume large amounts of energy and to deliver recommendations for replacement of the devices with more efficient alternatives.

Most people have no idea how much electricity their daily activities at home consume - but it would be an important prerequisite for conscientious use of energy. Researchers at the iHomeLab at Lucerne University have developed an analysis system that from the total power of a household (total load curve), can detect any electrical equipment that is switched on and can measure the individual energy consumption in real time. The project was supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy
