ABSTRACT: The article is part of the approach of finding the signatures for the individual household consumers using the voltage-current trajectories. Four classes of signatures are presented, known as: discontinuous tangent, tangent, ellipse, and hybrid. The functions describing the signatures are defined using a method based on non-linear regression and genetic algorithms. The method is implemented, with concrete results, on consumers from each of the four classes, starting with pairs of voltage-current values measured at low frequency, of approximately 20 Hz. This represents an important aspect from a practical point of view. There are four examples of signatures determined for: a laptop, a vacuum cleaner, a TV, and a fridge.
