Detect and Diagnose Faults

Train classifiers or regression models for condition monitoring

To design an algorithm for detecting and diagnosing faults, you use condition indicators extracted from system data to train a decision model that can analyze test data to determine the current system state.

When designing your algorithm, you might test different fault detection and diagnosis models using different condition indicators. Thus, this step in the design process is likely iterative with the step of extracting condition indicators, as you try different indicators, different combinations of indicators, and different decision models.

For an overview of the types of models you can use, see Decision Models for Fault Detection and Diagnosis
