Cathodic protection system design framework
The aim of this article is to establish a cathodic protection (CP) system design framework for the petrochemical industry in South Africa. The CP system design framework is destined to be used as a guideline when designing ...
Data acquisition system for capturing dynamic transients in a control valve
This work presents the development of a data acquisition (DAQ) system to be used in conjunction with fuzzy modelling to derive a dynamic mathematical model of a control valve. Characterising the behaviour of a control valve ...
Computational cost of an exergy-based fault detection scheme implemented in a commercial process simulator
Energy-based fault detection and isolation (FDI) schemes show promise in terms of applicability to petrochemical industries and the broader process industries. Model-based FDI schemes offer pronounced advantages over more ...
Statistical modelling of an ammonium nitrate fluidised bed granulator for inference measurement
Fluidised bed granulation is a widely used wet granulation technique. The operation of a fluidised bed granulator (FBG) as well as the quality of the product is strongly influenced by multiple process variables and ...
An energy-attributed graph approach for the purposes of FDI in a heated two-tank system
The focus of this paper is the development of attributed graph representations of industrial processes. In this case energy attributes are used since it serves a data reduction purpose and allows for the consideration of ...
