  • Publication number: 20180046917
    Abstract: Improved identification of a process anomaly in a technical facility includes training a self-organizing map using the historical process data as good states of the facility. The good states are used to determine a temporal sequence or a path of node hits and the tolerances of neuron hits. Threshold values are determined and stored for a Euclidean distance for the good states. The Euclidean distance of a current state vector to the neuron hit is checked as to whether the threshold value has been exceeded. The path determined is used to determine the neuron to be hit as long as the threshold value was not already exceeded in the check on the relevant neuron. A symptom vector from the current state vector and either the neuron hit or the neuron that is to be hit is determined.

  • Publication number: 20160231737
    Abstract: A flowchart of a process plant is compiled by linking graphical process objects representing operator-controllable and observable facilities of the plant when planning a process plant, wherein the process in the process plant is simulated with reference to simulation models assigned to the graphical process objects during a simulation phase, where simulation models include energy consumption models that describe the electrical energy consumption of the respective facilities to be described as a function of measurable or known process variables in the plant and hence enable simulation and optimization of the automation with respect to electrical energy consumption and energy efficiency.

  • Patent number: 9086308
    Abstract: A method for operating a Coriolis mass flow rate meter and a Coriolis mass flow rate meter including an evaluation device, a measuring tube having a medium flowing therethrough and which is excited so as to perform oscillations, and at least two spaced oscillation pickups spaced apart in the longitudinal direction of the measuring tube to each generate an oscillation signal, wherein a first indicator variable based on the damping of the oscillations of the measuring tube is initially used to detect deposits in the measuring tube and if, based on the first indicator variable, increased damping is established, a second indicator variable is used, which is based on the manifestation of harmonics in the frequency spectrum of an oscillation signal such that reliable detection of deposits and therefore an indication of the state of meters and pipelines in a process engineering installation are advantageously possible.

  • Patent number: 8102314
    Abstract: The invention relates to a position-finding method for determing the location of a mobile object. The features, for example received field strengths, of a plurality of base stations are measured, and the object position is located from these features, using a reference map. During an initialization process, a reference map is created which comprises a multiplicity of positions and the associated feature-dependent values. During use of the method, a plurality of position-finding processes are carried out, by means of each of which a measured feature-dependent value and from this, a located position of the object, are determined using the predetermined reference map. The predetermined reference map is in each case updated for at least some of the positions found, during which updates, the feature-dependent values are each corrected by a correction term at the support points of the reference map in a predetermined area surrounding an object position.

  • Patent number: 7986963
    Abstract: The invention relates to a wireless communication device comprising an electrically operated radio module for wireless communication by receiving and/or transmitting communication signals in a transmitting and/or receiving mode; an electrically operated processor unit for controlling wireless communication via the radio module; a motion sensor for detecting movements and/or accelerations of the communication device, wherein the motion sensor outputs at least one detection signal to the processor unit in the event of the occurrence of movements and/or accelerations of a predetermined magnitude, wherein the processor unit is coupled to the motion sensor and the radio module in such a manner that it occasionally puts the radio module into the transmitting and/or receiving mode when outputting the at least one detection signal of the motion sensor.
