BLOND office environment data set released

Thomas Kriechbaumer & Hans-Arno Jacobsen of The Technical University of Munich (TUM) recently released BLOND - a building-level office environment dataset of typical electrical appliances. The data set contains voltage and current readings for aggregated circuits and matching fully-labeled ground truth data (individual appliance measurements). The study covers 53 appliances (16 classes) in a 3-phase power grid in Germany. The authors have released two versions of the data set:

  1. BLOND-50 contains 213 days of measurements sampled at 50 kHz (aggregate) and 6.4 kHz (individual appliances).
  2. BLOND-250 consists of the same setup: 50 days, 250 kHz (aggregate), 50 kHz (individual appliances).
The data set is also described in more detail in the following publications:
