    Abstract: A system and method for real-time detection of anomalies in a motor drive includes a controller receiving one or more signals corresponding to real-time operation of a controlled system. The controller samples the real-time signal during operation of the controlled system and maintains a moving window of the sampled data. A signature of the sampled data within the moving window is then generated. Each signature corresponds to operation of the controlled system within the period of time defined by the moving window. An identifier and a number of occurrences of each signature may be stored with the signature. An initial table of expected signatures may be generated, for example, by executing a training, or learning, period within the control system. The controller compares each real-time signature against the table of expected signatures to detect the occurrence of an anomaly.

  • Patent number: 10877452
    Abstract: A method and device of monitoring the operating state of a processing station in an industrial plant. A plurality of limited spatial regions are defined in the station including an actuator which moves an element. Audio sensors and processing units are used to determine a first reference sequence and a second sequence of audio signals of the limited spatial regions during a work cycle. A similarity index is generated based on comparison of the reference and the second sequence which is operable to identify possible anomalies in the station operation during work cycles. In one example, the particular limited spatial region where the anomaly occurs, the actuator or element identified in the anomaly, and the time at which the anomaly occurs can be identified.

  • Patent number: 10877464
    Abstract: A scalable industrial data ingestion and analysis architecture integrates and collects data from multiple diverse sources at one or more industrial facilities. Data sources can include plant-level industrial devices and higher-level business systems. The data can be integrated and collected from multiple sources at an on-premise edge or gateway device, which sends the data to event queues on the cloud platform. The data queues orchestrate and store the data on cloud storage, and an analytics layer performs business analytics or other types of analysis on the stored data to produce various outcomes. Similar analytic platforms can also be implemented at the device level, and analytic functions can be scaled between the device level and higher levels in accordance with the scope of a given analytic function.

  • Patent number: 10865546
    Abstract: According to at least one aspect, a fluid flow monitoring system includes an ultrasonic sensor for generating measurement signals associated with respective ultrasonic signals propagating through the fluid in the lumen, a shut-off valve for blocking fluid flow in the lumen, and a controller. The controller can be communicatively coupled to the ultrasonic sensor and to the shut-off valve. The controller can be configured to compute a plurality of fluid flow parameter estimates based on a plurality of measurement signals generated by the ultrasonic sensor over a time window while the shut-off valve is open. The controller can obtain an offset value associated with fluid flow parameter measurements during a zero flow state of the shut-off valve. The controller can then check for presence of a fluid leak event based on the fluid flow parameter estimates over the time window and the offset value.

  • Patent number: 10859608
    Abstract: An input circuit for detecting low voltage analog signals in an electrically noisy environment receives the analog input signal at an input terminal. The analog input signal is compared to a variable reference signal at a comparator circuit. An active hysteresis circuit provides feedback to the comparator. In a first operating mode, the active hysteresis circuit may be disabled or be configured to output a constant voltage. In a second operating mode, the active hysteresis circuit may be enabled or configured to output a varying level of voltage. The output of the feedback circuit is summed with the variable reference signal and supplied as the input signal to the comparator, such that signal against which the analog input signal is compared is a general constant value in the first operating mode and varies with respect to time in the second operating mode.

  • Patent number: 10838798
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to error resolution processing systems with improved error prediction features and enhanced resolution techniques. A computing platform may receive error log files identifying error codes corresponding to error occurrences on one or more different virtual machine host platforms. The computing platform may aggregate the error codes corresponding to the error occurrences to generate an error lattice. Using the error lattice, the computing platform may predict an error outcome. Based on the predicted error outcome, the computing platform may determine a system configuration update to be applied to the one or more virtual machine host platforms. The computing platform may direct a dynamic resource management computing platform to distribute relevant portions of the system configuration update to each of the one or more virtual machine host platforms. This may cause the one or more virtual machine host platforms to implement the system configuration update.

  • Patent number: 10839260
    Abstract: Consistent distributed edge models via controlled dropout model training are described. According to some embodiments, a machine learning model is trained using multiple sensor data streams. During the training process, ones of the sensor data streams are dropped to cause the model to be generated to be robust in that it can tolerate missing input data from sensor data sources yet still maintain high accuracy. The model can be deployed to multiple sensor devices within an environment. The sensor devices generate sensor data and exchange a variety of types of data to ultimately result in a distributed, consistent model result being generated that remains accurate despite communication faults that may occur between ones of the sensor devices.
