Fault detection in the Tennessee Eastman benchmark process using dynamic principal components analysis based on decorrelated residuals (DPCA-DR)
A set of multivariate statistics based on DPCA and on the generation of decorrelated residuals were developed, that present low auto-correlation levels, and therefore are better positioned to implement SPC in a consistent and stable way (DPCA-DR). Expand

Defining the structure of DPCA models and its impact on process monitoring and prediction activities
Abstract Dynamic Principal Component Analysis (DPCA) is an extension of Principal Component Analysis (PCA), developed in order to add the ability to capture the autocorrelative behavior of processes,Expand

Optimal design of experiments applied to headspace solid phase microextraction for the quantification of vicinal diketones in beer through gas chromatography-mass spectrometric detection.
Vicinal diketones, namely diacetyl (DC) and pentanedione (PN), are compounds naturally found in beer that play a key role in the definition of its aroma. In lager beer, they are responsible forExpand
