    Sensor Fault Detection in Power Plants

    This paper presents a sensor fault detection and diagnosis approach for industrial combustion processes. Clustering algorithms are applied to the measurements of controllable process variables involved in single-input-single-output feedback control loops. Current data points from the process are compared with the clusters to identify sensor faults. Once the measurements of...

    Strategic Network Utilization in a Wireless Structural Control System for Seismically Excited Structures

    The benefits associated with structural control include the mitigation of undesired structural responses and reduction in the probability of damage to structural components during seismic events. Structural control systems in current use depend on extensive wired communication systems to connect sensors and actuators with a centralized controller. While wired architectures...
