# GeLaP: German Labeled Data Set for Power Consumption
This repository provides a new labeled power consumption data set that was 
collected in 20 private households in Germany between September 2019 and 
4
July 2020 in the scope of the reseach project "BLADL -- Better life in old age

data of 20 households in Germany using conventionally available smart meters 
with a resolution of about 1Hz. In addition, we measured the individual power 
consumption of 10 devices in each household where the elecrical load indicates 
direct human interaction.

## Structure
The root-folder contains the documents `readme.txt`, `main-info.txt` and 
`main-info.json` as well as the 20 folders for the individual households. The 
`readme.txt` gives some basic information on the data set and its use. The 
documents main-info.txt and main-info.json contains the metadata for the 
measurements of all households in both human and machine-readable format.

For each test household there is a seperate folder with the documents 
`device-info.txt` and `device-info.json`. These containing the household-specific 
metadata including the device assignment. A separate CSV document with the raw 
measurements was created for each measured device (e.g., `label-001.csv`). The total 
household electricity measure- ments are stored in `smartmeter.csv`.
For deployment, the folders of the individual household measurements were packed 
into a tar archive and compressed using `xz`. This reduced the total file size 
from 79 GB to 6.6 GB without loss of information.
