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

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? VSE Corporation Proprietary Information

3 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 VSE Corporation Proprietary Information

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

5 Coolant Pressure vs Temperature
Prognostic Reasoning 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 Coolant Pressure vs Temperature Temperature (oC) Pressure (psi) VSE Corporation Proprietary Information

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 VSE Corporation Proprietary Information
