Combined centralized and decentralized fault diagnosis for discrete event systems

Karav, Ruhi
Discrete Event Systems (DES) are used for modeling systems such as manufacturing systems, telecommunication systems and transportation systems. It is possible to incorporate the fault model in the DES model together with a fault diagnosis approach to evaluate the robustness and the reliability of the system at the design stage. There are centralized or decentralized fault diagnosis approaches in the literature. The centralized fault diagnosis achieves stronger results however it does not scale to reasonably large systems because of its complexity. The decentralized diagnosis is applicable to real-life systems with a cost of possible misses of faults. This thesis proposes a combination of centralized and decentralized fault diagnosis for DES models. To this end, the thesis makes use of the observation that some parts of the faulty DES behavior might be detected by decentralized diagnosis while other parts need a centralized diagnoser. Hence, the overall complexity of the diagnosis is reduced while maintaining the ability to detect all faults. The thesis proposes a systematic diagnosis approach together with the algorithms and practical applications to manufacturing system and communication network examples.


Diagnosers for discrete event systems: improved realization and examples
Kart, Bora Eser; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Schmidt, Klaus Werner; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Many complex systems in different areas such as manufacturing, telecommunications or transportation can be modeled as Discrete Event Systems (DES). The task of fault detection and isolation is naturally desired for every system that has the possibility of any fault occurrences in it. To this end, a DES machine that can detect every modeled fault after a bounded number of event occurrence called diagnoser is used. In this thesis, there are two diagnoser realizations corresponding to the notions of event and ...
Real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulation of electrical machine systems using FPGAs
Üşenme, Serdar; Dilan, R.A.; Dölen, Melik; Koku, Ahmet Buğra (2009-11-18)
This study focuses on the development an integrated software and hardware platform that is capable of performing real-time simulation of dynamic systems, including electrical machinery, for the purpose of hardware-in-the-loop simulation (HILS). The system to be controlled is first defined using a block diagram editor. The defined model is then compiled and downloaded onto an FPGA (¿Field Programmable Gate Array¿) based hardware platform, which is to interface with the controller under test and carry out the...
Improved Parallel Preconditioners for Multiphysics Topology Optimizations
Akay, Hasan Umur; Oktay, Erdal; Manguoğlu, Murat; Sivas, Abdullah Ali (2015-05-17)
Topology optimization, also known as layout optimization, involves multiple physics encompassing structural, thermal, fluidic electrical and electromechanical systems including coupled phenomena such as solids and fluids as in convective cooling systems, aerodynamical systems, electronics, actuators and motors. In the root of topology optimization is the repeated solution of the finite element equations Au = f representing the physics of the problem at hand such as elasticity, heat transfer, fluid flow and ...
Order-Preserving Languages for the Supervisory Control of Automated Manufacturing Systems
Nooruldeen, Anas; Schmidt, Klaus Verner (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-01-01)
Automated manufacturing systems (AMSs) consist of computer-controlled interconnected manufacturing components (MCs) that are used to transport and process different product types. Each product type requires a certain sequence of processing steps in different MCs. Hereby, multiple product types can share processing steps on the same MC and the paths of different products types can overlap. In this paper we consider the modeling of AMSs in the scope of supervisory control for discrete event systems (DES). On ...
Implementation and evaluation of the dynamic distributed real time industrial protocol (D²RIP)
Kaya, Adem; Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
The contemporary large-scale and complex industrial control systems such as manufacturing systems, power plants or chemical processes are realized as distributed systems. Since different controller nodes are usually physically distributed, their coordination and information exchange is commonly realized via industrial communication networks (ICNs). In the last decade, there is an ongoing research effort in both academic and industrial fields to employ Ethernet for industrial communications due to its wide a...
