PHM Techniques for Condition-Based Maintenance Based on Hybrid System Model Representation



Claudia Maria García Teresa Escobet Joseba Quevedo


Condition-based maintenance (CBM) is a maintenance strategy that uses diagnosis and prognosis to determine system‟s health. The overall objective of this paper is design a real-time monitoring system for CBM, applied to a conveyor belt system, based on the integration of prognosis and health management technologies (PHM) and hybrid models. This work is focus on the prognosis part of PHM. A forecasting model based in Adaptive- Network-based Fuzzy Inference Systems (ANFIS) combined with a Gray-Scale Health Index (HI) is implemented to evaluate the system degradation. As shown throughout the paper, the hybrid model allows extracting the main features of the system that will be used in the prognostic algorithm. The obtained results show that the ANFIS prediction model linked to the degradation index HI can track the system degradation, thus have the potential for being used as a tool suitable for condition-based maintenance.
