Diagnosis, Estimation, Filtering, Multivariate Statistical Methods, and Process Data
For a good product quality and plant safety, it is necessary to implement the on-line monitoring and diagnosis schemes of industrial processes. Combined with monitoring systems, reliable diagnosis schemes seek to find assignable causes of the process variables responsible for faults or special events in processes. This study deals with the real-time diagnosis of complicated industrial processes from the intelligent use of multivariate statistical techniques. The presented diagnosis scheme consists of a classification-based diagnosis using nonlinear representation and filtering of process data. A case study based on the simulation data was conducted, and the diagnosis results were obtained using different diagnosis schemes. In addition, the choice of future estimation methods was evaluated. The results showed that the performance of the presented scheme outperformed the other schemes.
Multivariate statistical methods, diagnosis, classification, noninear kernel, and filtering
Reliable monitoring and diagnosis of industrial processes is quite important for in terms of quality and safety. The goal of fault diagnosis is to find process variables responsible for causing specific abnormalities of the process. This work presents a classification-based diagnostic scheme based on nonlinear representation of process data. The use of a nonlinear kernel technique is able to reduce the size of the data considered and provides efficient and reliable representation of the measurement data. As a filtering stage a preprocessing is performed to eliminate unwanted parts of the data with enhanced performance. The case study of an industrial batch process has shown that the performance of the scheme outperformed other methods. In addition, the use of a nonlinear representation technique and filtering improved the diagnosis performance in the case study.
