报告题目：Advanced prognostics and condition based maintenance methodologies and their applications to energy systems
报告人：Zhigang (Will) Tian，an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada
Reliability, safety and integrity are critical to energy system operations. Condition based maintenance (CBM) aims at utilizing sensing information, such as vibration and acoustic data, to monitor and predict equipment health conditions and optimize maintenance and logistics activities. Prognostics is the key to effective reliability prediction and CBM, and the objective is to predict equipment future health condition and failure time based on condition monitoring data. In this talk, we will discuss integrated prognostics methodology, which utilizes both physical models and condition monitoring data, and its applications to mechanical components and liquid pipelines. CBM optimization methods and their applications to wind energy systems will also be presented.
