The current competence in the electrical industry, the complexity and criticality of the power systems require to know as well as possible the health condition of their most important components. However there is a very wide heterogeneity in equipments, control systems and management systems that difficult sometimes to take quick decisions and without and global perspective. In order to improve these weak points, the project will analyse and propose the design of an open system based on an intelligent multi-agent system able to integrate different aspects of the diagnosis and maintenance of the most important components in a power system.
The design to perform will allow crossing information from different sources of information about monitoring and diagnosis of different types of components and systems. This includes the re-use of existing systems and the addition of new ones in order to facilitate the coherence and efficiency of the diagnoses to be issued. Also, the new architecture will allow having more detailed information about the health condition of the main components of the electrical system.
The platform to be designed will use several technologies from the diagnosis and maintenance fields, intelligent systems, multi-agent systems and new information technologies.
