In this paper, we propose a machine learning method for diagnosing the failure of a gas pressure regulator.
Originally, when implementing a machine learning model for detecting abnormal operation of a facility, it is common to install sensors to collect data. However, failure of a gas pressure regulator can lead to fatal safety problems, so that installing an additional sensor on a gas pressure regulator is not simple. In this paper, we propose various machine learning approach for diagnosing the abnormal operation of a gas pressure regulator with only the flow rate and gas pressure data collected from a gas pressure regulator itself.
Since the fault data of a gas pressure regulator is not enough, the model is trained in all classes by applying the over-sampling method. The classification model was implemented using Gradient boosting, 1D Convolutional Neural Networks, and LSTM algorithm, and gradient boosting model showed the best performance among classification models with 99.975% accuracy.
