Diagnosis-Prognosis of Electrical Machines



Most industries are moving toward intelligent health monitoring to minimize shutdowns and maintenance costs. It requires integrating electrical systems and information technology. The talk, divided into three parts, will elucidate that the cloud-based trained models will revolutionize the health monitoring of electrical machines.

The first part will explain the two aspects of health monitoring, i.e., Diagnosis, which refers to the early detection and classification of fault, and Prognoses, which identifies the fault’s evolution to predict the machine’s remaining useful life. It will explain that most of the industry is striving to move from scheduled-based maintenance to predictive maintenance as it is not only cost-efficient but also generates a more detailed report on Fault Diagnosis and Prognosis of Electrical Machines.

The second part will explain the enablers of cloud-based diagnosis and the prognosis of Electrical Machines. It will highlight Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Data Analytics, Cloud, Network, and Edge Computing. It will also emphasize that the main challenge is the amount and quality of the data used for model training.

The third part will discuss the data acquisition system, an essential pillar of health monitoring systems. It will also explain the importance of the edge node that will help the microcontroller with data acquisition from the cloud or locally in case of any data loss over the network.

The talk will provide food for thought to the students on exploring innovative techniques. It will also benefit government policymakers, industry leaders, decision-makers, and researchers. The added benefits of the talk will be transferring state-of-the-art knowledge, enhancing interest in research, establishing a collaborative relationship with students and faculty, and familiarizing the students with future/global career opportunities.

Fault diagnosis for T-S systems in finite frequency domain :
Some Results and Perspectives


This presentation proposes some results on observer design and methods of fault detection filter synthesis for a class of nonlinear systems. Observer-based LMI synthesis methods for T-S systems subjected to unknown inputs are presented. Subsequently, multi-objective synthesis problem is discussed in FDI framework. When we are interested in these problems in finite frequency domains, these classic techniques (in infinite frequency domains) become quite restrictive. Indeed, the problem of multiobjective synthesis in the finite frequency domain is addressed. In a fault diagnosis context, the generated residue must be as sensitive as possible to faults and as robust as possible against unknown perturbations by means of two finite frequency performance indices such as the H_ and H indexes. Still open perspectives will be discussed.   


Mohammed Chadli (SM’09, M‘99) received his MScEng (DEA) from the Engineering School INSA-Lyon (France, 1999) and from “Ecole Normale Sup.” (Mohammedia, Morocco), the Ph.D. thesis in Automatic Control from the University of Lorraine (UL), CRAN-Nancy in 2002 and his habilitation in 2011 at the University of Picardie Jules Verne (UPJV) Amiens. He was Lecturer and Assistant Professor at the “Institut National Polytechnique de Lorraine” (UL, 2000-2004). Since 2004, he was Associate Professor at the UPJV and is currently a Full Professor at the University Paris-Saclay, Univ Evry, IBISC Lab., France.
