Abstract

Condition monitoring, within the power industry, is essential to ensure continuous operation and health of electrical plans. This is a complex activity that requires the combination of different artificial intelligence techniques. This article describes a multiagent framework to support such a condition-monitoring approach. The resulting condition monitoring multiagent system (COMMAS) was applied to two different case studies, to monitor the start-up sequences of industrial gas turbines and identification of partial discharge signal defects in gas insulated substations.
