Time series trending for condition assessment and prognostics

Time series trending for condition assessment and prognostics Purpose – The developments of complex systems have increased the demand for condition monitoring techniques so as to maximize operational availability and safety while decreasing the costs. Signal analysis is one of the methods used to develop condition monitoring in order to extract important information contained in the sensory signals, which can be used for health assessment. However, extraction of such information from collected data in a practical working environment is always a great challenge as sensory signals are usually multi‐dimensional and obscured by noise. The paper aims to discuss this issue. Design/methodology/approach – This paper presents a method for trends extraction from multi‐dimensional sensory data, which are then used for machinery health monitoring and maintenance needs. The proposed method is based on extracting successive features from machinery sensory signals. Then, unsupervised feature selection on the features domain is applied without making any assumptions concerning the source of the signals and the number of the extracted features. Finally, empirical mode decomposition (EMD) algorithm is applied on the projected features with the purpose of following the evolution of data in a compact representation over time. Findings – The method is demonstrated on accelerated degradation data set of bearings acquired from PRONOSTIA experimental platform and a second data set acquired form NASA repository. Originality/value – The method showed that it is able to extract interesting signal trends which can be used for health monitoring and remaining useful life prediction. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Manufacturing Technology Management Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – The developments of complex systems have increased the demand for condition monitoring techniques so as to maximize operational availability and safety while decreasing the costs. Signal analysis is one of the methods used to develop condition monitoring in order to extract important information contained in the sensory signals, which can be used for health assessment. However, extraction of such information from collected data in a practical working environment is always a great challenge as sensory signals are usually multi‐dimensional and obscured by noise. The paper aims to discuss this issue. Design/methodology/approach – This paper presents a method for trends extraction from multi‐dimensional sensory data, which are then used for machinery health monitoring and maintenance needs. The proposed method is based on extracting successive features from machinery sensory signals. Then, unsupervised feature selection on the features domain is applied without making any assumptions concerning the source of the signals and the number of the extracted features. Finally, empirical mode decomposition (EMD) algorithm is applied on the projected features with the purpose of following the evolution of data in a compact representation over time. Findings – The method is demonstrated on accelerated degradation data set of bearings acquired from PRONOSTIA experimental platform and a second data set acquired form NASA repository. Originality/value – The method showed that it is able to extract interesting signal trends which can be used for health monitoring and remaining useful life prediction.
