Abstract

It is very important to diagnose abnormal events in industrial processes. Based on normal operating data in a dynamic process, dynamic latent variable model provides a clear view of separating dynamic and static variations. Recent work by Li et al. (2014a) has shown an effective diagnosis in faulty variables with multidirectional reconstruction based contributions. Their further work took Granger causality analysis into accounts to explore the casual relations instead of only correlations. Although Granger causality is a widely used method for many applications, it needs time series to be stationary to calculate the causality index, which is not applicable for nonstationary fault processes. In this paper, a new causality analysis index based on dynamic time warping is proposed to determine the causal direction between pairs of faulty variables. The case study on the Tennessee Eastman process with a step fault shows the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
