This Statement of Work covers the need for the services of a college student to provide technical and/or analytical support in the field of electrical/mechanical engineering for the Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring for Load Disaggregation and Power Quality Analysis project. The purpose of this Energy System Technology Evaluation Program (ESTEP) funded project is to determine which non-intrusive load monitoring solution(s) offer the best potential for building-level load disaggregation and power quality analysis.
Non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM) devices, such as smart meters, are used to measure, record and analyze a building’s energy consumption. Load disaggregation is the process of taking a building’s aggregate energy signal and breaking it down into appliance specific data. Accurate load disaggregation leads to a more detailed understanding of how a building’s energy is being used, allowing for greater insight that can lead to energy savings from efficiency improvements and optimization techniques.
The student shall accompany government personnel on round-trip travel from San Diego, CA to Arizona State University to assist with equipment installation and field experimentation.
The purpose of the travel is to assist engineers with installing test equipment and collecting field test data relevant to the subject matter of the host project. The student will be utilizing the data collected from Arizona State University’s LEAPS microgrid testbed for their research tasking.
Graduate Level 2: Electrical/Mechanical Engineering major (working on PhD).
Additional Qualifications/ Completed Coursework:
This is a student position and is limited to working 20 hours per week
This position will remain open until filled
San Diego State University Research Foundation is an EEO/AA/Disability/Vets Employer
