Principal component analysis (PCA) is a powerful fault detection and isolation method. However, the classical PCA which is based on the estimation of the sample mean and covariance matrix of the data is very sensitive to outliers in the training data set. Usually robust principal component analysis was applied to remove the effect of outliers on the PCA(More)
Sensors are essential components of modern control systems. Any faults in sensors will affect the overall performance of a system because their effects can easily propagate to manipulative variables through feedback control loops and also disturb other process variables. The task for sensor validation is to detect and isolate faulty sensors and estimate(More)
