7 Data Description Data Set: 2880 samples, 1 min. data, Variables: 45 Tags + 15 Controller Outputs (MV) 15 SISO control loops 5 cascade control loops 2 DMCs

8
8 Detection Philosophy Which variables are oscillating? Which variables have common oscillations? Important to find All variables with common oscillations Root cause likely to lie within this set

9
9 Detection by Visual Inspection Fourier Transform Time trends Presence of Oscillation – Peak in Spectra Period and Regularity – Difficult to Judge Multiple oscillations destroy Regularity Noise overshadows Oscillations Power Spectrum

10
10 Detection using ACF Auto Correlation Function Effect of Noise Reduced ACF oscillates at same frequency as signal Regularity of oscillations – Zero Crossings of ACF Power Spectrum Time Trend

11
11 Detection using ACF Period of OscillationOscillation regular if ACF Zero Crossings

12
12 Clustering using ACF Two signals – same frequency oscillation if Ref: Thornhill et al., JPC, 2003 Oscillation considered significant if (Power in selected band)/(Power in entire spectrum) >

13
13 Multiple Oscillations Fourier Transform Two peaks in Spectra Use Band pass filters Calculate ACF for each filtered signal

14
14 Detection Algorithm Remove Non-stationary trends Repeat if more than one oscillations present in every filter range OR stop Detect and cluster oscillations Narrow ranges of band pass filters around detected oscillations
