A software tool-set for the application of model-based diagnosis in power engineering

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Previous research has shown the suitability of Model-based reasoning (MBR), a powerful AI technique, for diagnostics and the validation of power system protection equipment [1]. However there are a number of barriers which prevent the propagation of this technology to other areas of engineering. Unresolved research issues coupled with a lack of reusable and extensible software tools make MBR difficult for engineers to exploit without developing systems from first principles.
This paper presents a MBR tool-set which aims to provide engineers with software tools that aid the development and application of MBR within engineering applications. The difficulties associated with the industrial application of MBR as well as the design and implementation of the tool-set will be discussed.
