Self-healing Mixing Boxes
! What is self-healing?
! Systems and/or controls that automatically implement solutions to
faults in their operation
! Why self-healing?
! Automated fault detection and diagnostics provides information that is useful theoretically, but a commitment for human action is required to capture benefits
! Self-healing systems/controls correct faults automatically
! Faults corrected by changes in parameters and software code
! Faults mitigated by automatically reconfiguring or redesigning controls
! Can correct some physical failures for which physical or analytic redundancy exists (e.g., virtual sensors)
! Cannot correct for many physical failures – compressor failure
