Application of Expert Systems to Industrial Utility Equipment
Optional Fields
Expert systems are computer systems which are capable of imitating the reasoning of a human expert within a particular area of knowledge. This reasoning is used to make decisions which solve problems in a particular domain. Applications of expert systems to industrial utility equipment have included fault detection and diagnosis (FDD), automated commissioning and optimisation. Substantial work has been carried out to date in the application of expert systems to the optimisation of HVAC and refrigeration equipment. This paper outlines other industrial technologies which display potential for deployment of remotely based expert systems tools for whole system improvement of operation. An analysis of the suitability of different expert system approaches toward identification of opportunities for improvement in each technology is detailed.
