IEC TS 63297:2021 is an attempt to provide classification of NILM sensing devices for use in NILM systems, according to the state of the art of NILM technologies.
The classification of NILM analytics and NILM systems, as well as performance indicators for NILM systems, can be considered in the future.
NILM systems produce estimated disaggregation into energy usages. When accurate measurement and analysis of energy consumption and/or other electrical parameters is needed (e.g. for monitoring the electrical installation), systems based on standardized measuring devices (e.g. PMD, PQI or meters) are used.
