PROJECT TITLE :
Water Nonintrusive Load Monitoring
Resource conservation decisions require detailed consumption info. This paper presents sensors and signal processing techniques that use pipe vibration signatures to non-intrusively determine water consumption at the appliance level. The strategy needs as little as one easily installed vibration sensor. This method provides a no-fuss retrofit resolution for detecting the operation of a building's water consuming appliances. In addition, flow rate is nonintrusively obtained from a conventional water meter via a new, high sensitivity strap-on magnetic sensor. Along, these 2 sensors track load operating schedule and water consumption in a very building, demonstrated here at three different field check sites.
