As we do regular check-ups and we maintain a healthy lifestyle, the health conditions of machines need also to be constantly monitored to ensure proper functioning. When the machines under observation are the ones that produce power for the collectivity, effective monitoring and diagnostics are not only essential to keep the plant working in an efficient way and keep the price of electricity low - it is also a matter of safety. This course will cover various methods for power plants diagnostics, exploring the use of numerical models and machine learning techniques to estimate components health conditions and predict the remaining useful lifetime.
