An Unsupervised Learning Approach to Condition Assessment on a Wound-Rotor Induction Generator

29 Sep 2021

Accurate online diagnosis of incipient faults and condition assessment on generators is especially challenging to automate through supervised learning techniques, because of data imbalance. Fault-condition training and test data are either not available or are experimentally emulated, and therefore do not precisely account for all the eventualities and nuances of…

Predictive Maintenance Framework for Cathodic Protection Systems Using Data Analytics

28 Sep 2021

In the quest to achieve sustainable pipeline operations and improve pipeline safety, effective corrosion control and improved maintenance paradigms are required. For underground pipelines, external corrosion prevention mechanisms include either a pipeline coating or impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP). For extensive pipeline networks, time-based preventative maintenance of ICCP units can…
