Improved ART1 Neural Network Based Condenser Fault Diagnosis


Article Preview

Condenser is an essential equipment of steam turbine. It is valuable to diagnose the fault when monitor the condenser system. To overcome shortcomings of BP neural network in fault diagnosis, ART1 (adaptive resonance architecture 1) is used to diagnose the condenser fault. The ART1 Neural network studies the typical fault features data, and realizes fault diagnosis. The results indicate the improved ART1 neural network can diagnose the condenser system fault correctly, and overcome the shortcoming of the original training algorithm. Although this is an application based on condenser, the algorithm can be used to further industrial system.
