Also, we have provided details on high electricity consumption devices and the load profile of the whole house. The aim of this data collection and processing exercise is to understand the electricity consumption patterns of users in the developing world. A sound realization of consumption patterns can help in the development of intelligent smart grids and better demand-side management tools.
PRECON is unique from the datasets of its kind because it is only extensive dataset collected over a period of one year which is publically available. Other than that it is different in terms that it monitors a greater number of households than any other similar dataset of developing countries.Link to Download PRECON Dataset
