Data Collections

The dataset consists of electricity consumption data (December 2016 to Jan 2018) from a high-rise residential building inside the IIT Bombay campus. The building consists of 60 3BHK(3 Bedrooms, I Hall and a Kitchen) apartments, each instrumented with a smart-meter, logging data at a sampling period of 5-8s. The data shared in the link below is downsampled at 1-hour granularity, sample dataset of two apartments which are at sampling 5-8 graunality is available under “Sample Monthly Dataset”. All the timestamps mentioned in the dataset is of Indian Standard Time(GMT+5.30), and India doesn’t follow daylight saving time. For privacy reasons, apartments are kept anonymous. The folder consists of 39 CSV files each representing an apartment. Apartments having significant data loss are removed from the list. The headers in the CSV files are as follows:

1)TS – Unix Time stamp (epochs)
2)V1 – Voltage of phase 1 (V)
3)V2 – Voltage of phase 2  (V)
4)V3 – Voltage of phase 3  (V)
5)W1 – Electricity consumption of phase 1 (Wh)
6)W2 – Electricity consumption of phase 2 (Wh)
7)W3 – Electricity consumption of phase 3 (Wh)
