Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Online diagnostics and online condition monitoring are important functions within the operation and maintenance of a power plant. When there is knowledge of the relationships between the raw data and the underlying phenomena within the plant item, typical intelligent system-based interpretation algorithms can be implemented. Increasingly, health data is captured without any underlying knowledge concerning the link between the data and their relationship to physical and electrical phenomena within the plant item. This leads to the requirement for dynamic and learning condition monitoring systems that are able to determine the expected and normal plant behavior over time. This paper describes how multi-agent system technology can be used as the underpinning platform for such condition monitoring systems. This is demonstrated through a prototype multi-agent anomaly detection system applied to a 2.5-MW diesel engine driven alternator system.
