Monitoring and diagnosis of equipment faults

Equipment faults and the associated plant upsets, which can result in reduced power production, thermal cycling, and protection system challenges, are a fact of life for commercial reactors. Operator response is symptom-based, requires scanning many instruments and alarms, and may not identify the fault. Automated diagnosis can help speed things up.
