1 Diagnostics, Prognostics and Condition Monitoring for Energy Efficiency 1 VSE Corporation Proprietary Information October 31, 2012 Rebecca Norman

2 VSE Corporation Proprietary Information Overview What is diagnostics, prognostics and condition monitoring? How can this technology be applied to increase energy efficiency and reliability? What are the unique features and benefits of this technology? Who can use this technology? 2

3 VSE Corporation Proprietary Information Diagnostics, Prognostics and Condition Monitoring Key Features: Diagnostic and prognostic interpretation of integrated system, equipment, and component data Hardware independent Integrates data from any source Scalable to any size system - supports a hierarchy of components and sub-systems Advanced model-based mathematical reasoning algorithms 3

4 VSE Corporation Proprietary Information Diagnostic Reasoning Component 1 Component 2 Component 3 Component 4 Component 5 Component 6 Component 7 Component 8 Monitoring Value A Monitoring Value B Monitoring Value C Monitoring Value E Monitoring Value D System Model(s) Include System Design, Connectivity & All Data Points Monitoring Value A Out of Tolerance Monitoring Value D Requested Monitoring Value D In Tolerance Component 3 Failure No Matter How Big the System, the Logic is the Same! 4

5 5 VSE Corporation Proprietary Information Coolant Pressure vs Temperature Temperature ( o C) Pressure (psi) Detects out of tolerance conditions for single, multiple and combinations of data points Predicts failures, detects degradation and under performance Determines the remaining useful life of components, equipment, and systems Prognostic Reasoning

6 VSE Corporation Proprietary Information Condition Monitoring Condition assessment triggers: Control signal Reconfiguration for redundant systems, equipment and components Provides continuous load balancing Enables adjustments for increased efficiency Operational Impact Assessment – Operator Dashboard Can the system continue to function in a degraded capacity? Notification Alerts operators, management, and/or dispatch maintenance with specific required parts and tools Other options: Post Analysis of Failed Components Provides critical input to manufacturers for design improvements 6

7 VSE Corporation Proprietary Information System Application Health Management System (HMS) Diagnostics & Prognostics for: Power Generators Power Transformers Battery Cabinet Battery Charger Environmental Control Thermostat Humidity Sensors CO Detectors Heat Exchanger 7
