Abstract

In this research, we propose a generic deep autoencoder model for automated feature extraction from the raw sensor data. Extracted deep features are classified with random forest algorithm for fault detection. Sensor data are labelled as healthy and faulty based on the maintenance actions recorded. The remaining healthy data is used for validation of the model to prove its efficacy in terms of avoiding false positives. We have achieved 100% accuracy in fault detection along with avoiding false positives based on new extracted deep features, which outperform the results using existing features. Existing features are also classified with random forest to compare results. Deep autoencoder random forest provides better results due to the new deep features extracted from the dataset when compared to existing features. Our model provides good classification and is robust against overfitting characteristics. This research will help various predictive maintenance systems to detect false alarms, which will reduce unnecessary visits of service technicians to installation sites.
