Processes monitoring using adaptive confidence limit based on T-S fuzzy model and Luenberger observer

Khaled Bouzenad, Salah Rahmouni, Messaoud Ramdani


In hazard-sensitive processes, the monitoring upsets and malfunctions correctly is an important challenge to operation safely and enhance the performance. Conventional process monitoring frequently assumes that process data follow only one Gaussian distribution, which generates a constant confidence limit and hence produces a high number of false alarms. However, in fact, industrial processes usually include various operating modes. To ovoid this drawback, the suggested approach employs an adaptive confidence limit (ACL) when a substantial number of false alarms are created. The fundamental concept underlying this study is to extract internally several local linear sub-modes of the monitored variables. In typical operating circumstances, the Gaussian mixture model (GMM) is utilized to extract several local linear sub-modes, followed by fuzzy linearization using the Takagi-Sugeno model, thereafter a bank of Luenberger observers to construct the residual spaces. An abnormal event is detected when the squared prediction error (SPE) is too great or exceeds the adaptive threshold designed to prevent the false alarms. Furthermore, an enhanced contribution plots is effectively used to identify the defective variable.
