Elk apparaat kent een “vingerafdruk”

Artikel Fraunhofer Instituut, 1 december 2016 spreekt over vingerafdrukken van apparaten:

The technology is based on a simple principle: each device has a pattern of energy consumption that gives rise to a type of signature or “fingerprint” within the power grid. Using algorithms, it is possible to identify this signature within total energy consumption, and so determine energy consumption rates for individual appliances.
