A design methodology for a self-maintenance machine

  • A discussion of using self-maintenance technology to achieve high reliability of equipment

    Reliability and maintainability is an indivisible entity. High reliability of equipment can reduce or avoid the cost caused by shutdown and maintenance which is induced by faults. This can be done through improving the maintainability of the equipment, and it can compensate the disadvantage of the large amount of money which is caused by merely increasing reliability. Compare to the traditional maintenance task, for the self-maintenance technology can detect the faults of the equipment timely and monitor the integrity of structure to heal itself, it can provide higher reliability to equipment. Based on the research of the self-maintenance theory and the prognostics and health management (PHM) technology, a framework of maintainability design based on the self-repairing technology is presented in this paper. A discussion of the application value gained through using the self-maintenance technology to the equipment, such as man-made satellite, that may have a heavy loss caused by faults which are difficult to maintain is provided.

  • Advanced credit-assignment CMAC algorithm for robust self-learning and self-maintenance machine

    Smart machine necessitates self-learning capabilities to assess its own performance and predict its behavior. To achieve self-maintenance intelligence, robust and fast learning algorithms need to be embedded in machine for real-time decision. This paper presents a credit-assignment cerebellar model articulation controller (CA-CMAC) algorithm to reduce learning interference in machine learning. The developed algorithms on credit matrix and the credit correlation matrix are presented. The error of the training sample distributed to the activated memory cell is proportional to the cell's credibility, which is determined by its activated times. The convergence processes of CA-CMAC in cyclic learning are further analyzed with two convergence theorems. In addition, simulation results on the inverse kinematics of 2-degree-of-freedom planar robot arm are used to prove the convergence theorems and show that CA-CMAC converges faster than conventional machine learning.

  • A design methodology for a self-maintenance machine

    Traditional design for reliability is not perfect, because such systems aim at less faults but once a fault happens they hard-fail. To prevent such disasters, one should develop soft-fail machines that can still maintain their functions even if faults happen. The authors propose a framework of a self- maintenance machine (SMM). Two repair strategies are proposed; viz., control type and functional redundancy type that is a strategy to add redundancy to a machine by using potential functions of existing parts. For executing fault diagnosis and repair planning, a model based approach that employs qualitative physics, is proposed. Finally, they illustrate two prototypes of SMM; the control type and the functional redundancy type.<<ETX>>

  • ACMFS: An abnormal circumstance-driven self-maintenance mechanism based on flexible scheduling

    Constructing service cooperation-based VOs (Virtual Organizations) has become one of mainstream approaches for developing application software systems in Internet computing environments. This paper proposes the mechanism ACMFS to achieve the service cooperation-oriented self-maintenance of VOs which are created dynamically and on requirement. By developing technologies of abnormal circumstance-driven VO maintenance, 3-phase control cycle for transacting abnormal circumstances, and flexible scheduling of local business processes, ACMFS can maintain effectively the capability for a VO to achieve its established objectives in two stages: self-adaptation and self-evolution.

  • Basic Principles, Models and Algorithms for Creation of Self-Maintenance and Self-Recovery Systems for Engines, Gas Turbines and Mechanics

    Models and algorithms for self-maintenance and self-recovery systems of engines and mechanics are developed in this paper. Construction of models is based on mathematical formalisms defining hierarchical and topological structure of the state space of a mechanical system. The purpose of such constructions consists in allocation in the state space the system of regions whose boundaries are the physical boundaries of the reversibility of the physical state of the system. Within these regions the state of system under variations of the management parameters is reversible, that is, the system can be restored to its original state or the closest to the original by varying the management parameters. The trajectory of return and the temporal dependence of the management parameters are determined in this case. Under the self-maintenance here is defined the construction of algorithms for automatic calculating of trajectories and temporal variations of the management parameters set for bringing the system to previously specified circular or nearly circular trajectory. In the regions of the solution of cyclic task of self-maintenance has a solution. Problem of optimization of state evolution trajectory in order to maximize spent by the system in the preassigned trajectory is set out-side boundaries of regions of the return for the self- maintenance. (Maximization problem). But a return to cyclical trajectory is already impossible due to the physical irreversibility. Taking into account the hierarchy in states of mechanism for all time of its life cycle, there are several levels on each of which the problem of self-maintenance is solved in the sense of maximization problems. The last hierarchical level is designated by boundary outside of which the failure region is located. Therefore, the problem of self-maintenance is the maximum holding of the system on the trajectory reaching the boundary of failure region. Automatic construction of an optimal management strategy involves a comprehensive automated parameter management in the field of their allowable values. The situation is considered when a complex incorrect, unoptimized parameter management mechanism leads to failure. These situations must be excluded in the construction of management strategy. In particular, it is demonstrated that the cause of failure of mechanics is changes of the engine management parameters on transition regimes are not consistent with the degeneracy space of PDF. This discordance leads to the destruction of symmetry and the appearance of heavy - tails of distribution functions. Experimental situations are demonstrated on internal combustion engines and friction pairs in the mechanisms.

  • Self-maintenance scheduling algorithms for next generation wireless networks

    In this research, we study the self-maintenance scheduling problem in next generation wireless networks, with the consideration of resource maintenance constraints and resource conflicting constraints. We propose a linear programming (ILP) model and two heuristic algorithms, and evaluate their effectiveness and time complexity via analysis and simulations. Our results show that all of the proposed approaches can effectively schedule the requests within a reasonable period of time, but with different suitable scenarios. The ILP approach is effective when the number of requests is large and yields close-to-optimal results; the RC-Cliques-RM algorithm is suitable at the presence of many constraints; while the RC-RM-Cliques algorithm can scale to large size networks at the expense of reduced accuracy. It is anticipated that the proposed scheduling algorithms will be generally applicable to various mobile wireless networks where self-maintenance is needed.

  • A self-maintenance clustering algorithm based on decision model for space information networks

    Space information networks, which have become a popular research focus, are a new type of self-organizing networks. With fully considering characteristics distinguishing space information networks from common self-organizing networks such as terrestrial ad hoc networks and wireless sensor networks, the proposed clustering algorithm introduces a decision model based on analytic hierarchy process (AHP) to select cluster heads, and then forms non-overlapping k-hop clusters. The dynamical self-maintenance mechanisms take node mobility and cluster equalization into account. Besides of cluster merger/partition disposal, reaffiliation management and adaptive adjustment of information update period, mobile agents are used to migrate and duplicate functions of cluster heads in a recruiting way. Simulation results show that our clustering algorithm improves network scalability and is suitable for use in space information networks.
