EVALUATION OF BUILDING ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION OF RESIDENTIAL DWELLINGS IN OSHAWA

Andrew Lukomski, Kamiel Gabriel, Yaolin Lin, Don Pitman

Abstract: In this paper, the principle component analysis was applied to find the most important factors that affect the electricity consumption in 55 houses in Oshawa. The long-term trends of electricity consumptions of 270 houses located in Oshawa, currently being monitored by smart meters, were generated for several types of houses with different mechanical systems. Occupants' behavioral factors that contribute to the electricity consumption were examined and analyzed. Simple correlation models were developed to predict the electricity consumption for a number of houses.
