Fault detection for distributed parameter systems reported so far is model-based in general and the performance heavily relies on the prior known model information. This restricts the usability of these methods in industrial applications. In this paper, we make the first attempt to establish a brand-new framework that contains both on-line systems modeling and fault detection of unknown high-dimensional DPSs. These two parts interact with each other in the sense that the systems modeling error is transformed into the residual signal for fault detection while the on-line modeling switches to off-line mode depending on the fault detection results. The high-dimensional DPSs are first decomposed into spatial features and temporal sequences. Then a receding-horizon scheme is applied for the temporal dynamics learning and the residual signal is converted by the temporal validation error. Experiments on sensor faults diagnosis for the thermal process of a 2-D battery cell are provided for method validation.
