Design of Intelligent Tool Condition Monitoring System for Turning Machines using Artificial Neural Network

Turning operation is one of the important machining processes in manufacturing industries. Tool wear in turning, is one of the major problems which may lead to production loss and down time. An effective tool wear monitoring system is therefore required to minimize production loss and down time. The intelligent method I devised for Tool Condition Monitoring will be explained during my speech. The system includes a competitive artificial neural network to classify the condition of the tool-bit into fresh, slightly-worn or severely-worn states by sensing the emitted sound. Hilbert Huang Transform (HHT), an adaptive signal processing technique, is used for extracting the required features from emitted tool sound, which are non-linear and non-stationary in nature. The extracted features, the instantaneous frequency and the instantaneous amplitude, were used to train the neural network. I will be explaining how I achieved better accuracy of tool wear classification from the results obtained in my research, which includes experiments conducted at real industry.

Intelligent Control Design for Single-Stage Boost Inverter

Abstract :
In general, a dc-dc boost converter plus a dc-ac inverter is always required for the power conversion of a lower dc-voltage energy source (e.g., renewable energy or energy storage system) to produce a utility ac power. By this way, the manufacturing cost of this power conversion mechanism will be broadly increased. Thus, a single-stage boost inverter composed of two conventional boost converters has become one of interesting research topics in recent years. This speech mainly focuses on the recent development of four newly-designed control strategies including an adaptive control scheme, a fuzzy-neural-network (FNN) control framework, a total sliding-mode control (TSMC) strategy, and an adaptive FNN control (AFNNC) system for a single-stage boost inverter. First, the dynamic model of a single-stage boost inverter is analyzed and built for the later control manipulation. Then, a model-based adaptive control scheme and a model-free FNN control framework with varied learning rates are designed sequentially. For enhancing the robustness of the adaptive control scheme during the transient response of the voltage tracking control, a TSMC strategy without the reaching phase in conventional SMC is developed. In order to alleviate the control chattering phenomena caused by the sign function in the TSMC design and relax the requirement of detailed system dynamics, an AFNNC scheme is further investigated to imitate the TSMC law for the boost inverter. In the AFNNC scheme, on-line learning algorithms are derived in the sense of Lyapunov stability theorem and projection algorithm to ensure the stability of the controlled system without the requirement of auxiliary compensated controllers despite the existence of uncertainties. The output of the AFNNC scheme can be easily supplied to the duty cycle of the power switch in the boost inverter without strict constraints on control parameters selection in conventional control strategies. In addition, the effectiveness of the proposed four control frameworks is verified by realistic experiments, and the advantages of the proposed AFNNC system are indicated in comparison with the other strategies.

Big Data Model-An Application to Design of Rolling Process

Abstract :
Motivation  for  this  keynote  is  triggered  by urging  evidences  of  global climate disturbances,  natural  resource decline,  and  resulting  socioeconomic  disruptions.  The  large-scale  man-made  systems  - such as steel manufacturing plants - are  amongst the major resource consumers and environment polluters.  These industries governed by  multinational corporations driven by narrow-minded perceptions of profit do sufficient not take advantage of potential improvements (i.e. possible reduction in resource consumption while improving product quality and quantity). Steel is among the most used and most recycled engineering materials worldwide, and the foreseeable long-term forecasts predict growing requirements for products of  increasing  quality. The key systems in steel industry – hot rolling mills – are employed in processing nearly   90%  of  total volume of  steel  products. In this environment, there is pressing need for upgrading the unsustainable operations. The promising avenue for decisive progress in (re)designing rolling systems is by implementing Big Data strategy for mitigating the problems in untenable production and in designing new processes. This strategy stems from recognising importance of knowledge extracted from data accumulated in industrial repositories. Big Data strategy will be demonstrated by way of example of application to design of rolling mill production systems.  An internationally maintained collaboration between industry and academe is the prerequisite for realisation of proposed strategy.
