Today's electric power grids and supplies are cyber-physical systems, where information and communication technology (ICT) play an important role in reliably operating all system components. Different stakeholder measure electrical and thermal data. This can include heat pumps in private households, electricity consumption in office buildings or a combination of both in industrial plants. Analyzing such data enables a wide variety of possible applications. Furthermore, machine learning on energy time-series data poses multiple challenges to both algorithms, platform design and data privacy. In this seminar, students will be able to make own research contributions to this research area. They will dive into different areas of energy informatics, with focus on the various machine learning techniques applied to this research field and the applications for Smart Homes or Smart Factories which are based on the results of such analysis. Applications based on electrical data analysis range from detecting individual appliances in households to condition monitoring and predictive maintenance on industrial plants. The wide distribution of sensors in the context of “Industry 4.0 scenarios” further enables such applications and it is of particular interest to investigate the use of electrical data to facilitate the development of smart factories. The topics consist of conducting literature research and/or coding your own prototype. The pre-liminary meeting will take place on Monday 5th of July 2021 at 11:00 a.m. via


The topics in this seminar are suited for both students with beginner or advanced knowledge in machine learning and ones interested in it from a higher-level application and architectural perspective.
