      Article
      Open Access
      An important problem to be addressed by diagnostic systems in industrial applications is the estimation of faults with incomplete observations. This work discusses different approaches for handling missing data, and ...
    • Fault diagnosis using the incremental learning algorithm with support vector machine

      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      To prevent process interruption and eventual losses, the need for a reliable fault detection and diagnosis system (FDD) is completely acknowledged. Besides the capability to recognize known faults automatically, a further ...
    • Incremental learning fault detection algorithm based on hyperplane-distance 

      Ardakani, Mohammadhamed; Escudero Bakx, Gerard; Graells Sobré, Moisès; Espuña Camarasa, Antonio (Elsevier, 2016)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Traditional methods for Fault Detection and Diagnosis (FDD) usually, consider that processes operate under a single steady condition, but because of several reasons (e.g.: equipment aging), operation conditions of ...
