The non-intrusive load monitor has been demonstrated - as an effective tool for evaluating and monitoring shipboard electro-mechanical systems through analysis of electrical power data. A key advantage of the nonintrusive approach is the ability to reduce sensor count by monitoring collections of loads. This paper reviews tradeoffs that affect the likely performance of the NILM in a real world environment.
