Describes the latest developments in nonlinear methods and their application in fault diagnosis
Discusses in detail several advances in machine learning theory
Contains numerous case studies with real-world data from industry
Algorithms for intelligent fault diagnosis of automated operations offer significant benefits to the manufacturing and process industries. Furthermore, machine learning methods enable such monitoring systems to handle nonlinearities and large volumes of data.
This unique text/reference describes in detail the latest advances in Unsupervised Process Monitoring and Fault Diagnosis with Machine Learning Methods. Abundant case studies throughout the text demonstrate the efficacy of each method in real-world settings. The broad coverage examines such cutting-edge topics as the use of information theory to enhance unsupervised learning in tree-based methods, the extension of kernel methods to multiple kernel learning for feature extraction from data, and the incremental training of multilayer perceptrons to construct deep architectures for enhanced data projections.
Topics and features:
Reviews the application of machine learning to process monitoring and fault diagnosis
Discusses machine learning frameworks based on artificial neural networks, statistical learning theory and kernel-based methods, and tree-based methods
Examines the application of machine learning to steady state and dynamic operations, with a focus on unsupervised learning
Describes the use of spectral methods in process fault diagnosis
This highly practical and clearly-structured work is an invaluable resource for all researchers and practitioners involved in process control, multivariate statistics and machine learning.
