Multiway Principal Component Analysis (MPCA)
and Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) approaches are applied in a biological nutrient removal process. The goal is monitoring of normal and abnormal operation conditions in this process. MPCA is used as a compression tool where with few variables the process can be described, as well as, to detect batches
with abnormal conditions. However, some abnormal conditions (alarms) are omitted or, otherwise some false alarms are produced. Then, CBR is proposed. It assumes that similar problems should have similar solutions. In biological process, these
problems generally are operational situations under normal or abnormal situations: low ORP, high pH, sensors fault, among others. These symptoms can be stored in a Case Base (CB) in order to diagnose future situations. Several proof are made in
order to find the better methodology.
