Cases and Results
The figure below shows the MonitorX cases. Since the project focus was on models and algorithm for data analysis, most cases include model and algorithm development and testing. However, since data access is a key requirement for all cases, one of the cases (C8) focused on collection of data from the hydropower plants local control system. The hydropower equipment manufacturer Voith developed a new solution for data access to supply the project with a data set of high quality. All other cases aim to detect faults or degradation of hydropower components through monitoring of carefully selected parameters, and then analysis of these parameters with respect to the normal behaviour of the component (i.e. detecting deviations from normal behaviour, where deviations may indicate a problem or fault).
