Title. Residential Energy Consumption Measurement from Data Traffic Patterns of Smart Wireless Meter Communications.
Smart meters enable highly accurate measurement of domestic electric consumption in order to: i) reduce electric energy bill costs. ii) reduce the waste of electric energy, iii) help optimise the household electric energy consumptions. iv) help service providers improve production, distribution and delivering of electric energy, v) reduce the carbon footprint.
On the other hand, electric data collection, processing and storing cloud services may incur high costs for the householders. Therefore, it is important to provide mechanisms that allow reducing the need for large amounts of network communication transactions without the loss of accuracy of the electric energy measurements.
In this manner, we propose a mechanism that enables domestic electric energy measurement via the smart wireless electric energy data traffic meters. Electric consumption measurements consider a network of wireless smart meters (University of Essex e-CLIPS nodes) attached to electric and electronic appliances. We employ different transmission schemes to produce the wireless traffic, and evaluate the channel use against the electric energy consumption to seek the scheme that balances electric consumption measurement accuracy against lower channel use.
