    An Efficient Fuzzy Logic Fault Detection and Identification Method of Photovoltaic Inverters

    Mokhtar Aly1,2, Hegazy Rezk3,4,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.67, No.2, pp. 2283-2299, 2021, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2021.014786

    Abstract Fuzzy logic control (FLC) systems have found wide utilization in several industrial applications. This paper proposes a fuzzy logic-based fault detection and identification method for open-circuit switch fault in grid-tied photovoltaic (PV) inverters. Large installations and ambitious plans have been recently achieved for PV systems as clean and renewable power generation sources due to their improved environmental impacts and availability everywhere. Power converters represent the main parts for the grid integration of PV systems. However, PV power converters contain several power switches that construct their circuits. The power switches in PV systems are highly subjected to high stresses due to… More >

    Wind Turbine Drivetrain Expert Fault Detection System: Multivariate Empirical Mode Decomposition based Multi-sensor Fusion with Bayesian Learning Classification

    R. Uma Maheswari1,*, R. Umamaheswari2

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.26, No.3, pp. 479-488, 2020, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2020.013924

    Abstract To enhance the predictive condition-based maintenance (CBMS), a reliable automatic Drivetrain fault detection technique based on vibration monitoring is proposed. Accelerometer sensors are mounted on a wind turbine drivetrain at different spatial locations to measure the vibration from multiple vibration sources. In this work, multi-channel signals are fused and monocomponent modes of oscillation are reconstructed by the Multivariate Empirical Mode Decomposition (MEMD) Technique. Noise assisted methodology is adapted to palliate the mixing of modes with common frequency scales. The instantaneous amplitude envelope and instantaneous frequency are estimated with the Hilbert transform. Low order and high order statistical moments, signal feature… More >

    A Dynamic Independent Component Analysis Approach To Fault Detection With New Statistics

    M. Teimoortashloo1, A. Khaki Sedigh2,*

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.33, No.1, pp. 5-20, 2018, DOI:10.32604/csse.2018.33.005

    Abstract This paper presents a fault detection method based on Dynamic Independent Component Analysis (DICA) with new statistics. These new statistics are statistical moments and first characteristic function that surrogate the norm operator to calculate the fault detection statistics to determine the control limit of the independent components (ICs). The estimation of first characteristic function by its series is modified such that the effect of series remainder on estimation is reduced. The advantage of using first characteristic function and moments, over second characteristic function and cumulants, as fault detection statistics is also presented. It is shown that the proposed method can… More >

    A Reinforcement Learning System for Fault Detection and Diagnosis in Mechatronic Systems

    Wanxin Zhang1,*, Jihong Zhu2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.124, No.3, pp. 1119-1130, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2020.010986

    Abstract With the increasing demand for the automation of operations and processes in mechatronic systems, fault detection and diagnosis has become a major topic to guarantee the process performance. There exist numerous studies on the topic of applying artificial intelligence methods for fault detection and diagnosis. However, much of the focus has been given on the detection of faults. In terms of the diagnosis of faults, on one hand, assumptions are required, which restricts the diagnosis range. On the other hand, different faults with similar symptoms cannot be distinguished, especially when the model is not trained by plenty of data. In… More >

    Acoustic Emission Recognition Based on a Two-Streams Convolutional Neural Network

    Weibo Yang1, Weidong Liu2, *, Jinming Liu3, Mingyang Zhang4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.64, No.1, pp. 515-525, 2020, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2020.09801

    Abstract The Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) is a widely used deep neural network. Compared with the shallow neural network, the CNN network has better performance and faster computing in some image recognition tasks. It can effectively avoid the problem that network training falls into local extremes. At present, CNN has been applied in many different fields, including fault diagnosis, and it has improved the level and efficiency of fault diagnosis. In this paper, a two-streams convolutional neural network (TCNN) model is proposed. Based on the short-time Fourier transform (STFT) spectral and Mel Frequency Cepstrum Coefficient (MFCC) input characteristics of two-streams acoustic… More >

    Gear Fault Detection Analysis Method Based on Fractional Wavelet Transform and Back Propagation Neural Network

    Yanqiang Sun1, Hongfang Chen1,*, Liang Tang1, Shuang Zhang1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.121, No.3, pp. 1011-1028, 2019, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2019.07950

    Abstract A gear fault detection analysis method based on Fractional Wavelet Transform (FRWT) and Back Propagation Neural Network (BPNN) is proposed. Taking the changing order as the variable, the optimal order of gear vibration signals is determined by discrete fractional Fourier transform. Under the optimal order, the fractional wavelet transform is applied to eliminate noise from gear vibration signals. In this way, useful components of vibration signals can be successfully separated from background noise. Then, a set of feature vectors obtained by calculating the characteristic parameters for the de-noised signals are used to characterize the gear vibration features. Finally, the feature… More >

    A. Rama Mohan Rao1, S. Krishna Kumar1, K. Lakshmi1

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.8, No.3, pp. 271-294, 2012, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2012.008.271

    Abstract Current advancements in structural health monitoring, sensor and sensor network technologies have encouraged using large number of sensor networks in monitoring spatially large civil structures like bridges. Large amount of spatial information obtained from these sensor networks will enhance the reliability in truly assessing the state of the health of the structure. However, if sensors go faulty during operation, the feature extraction techniques embedded into SHM scheme may lead to an erroneous conclusion and often end up with false alarms. Hence it is highly desirable to robustly detect the faulty sensors, isolate and correct the data, if the data at… More >
