Sensor Placement for Monitoring Systems Modelled by Bond Graph
(Full text in English)

Mounira BENALLEL, Hafid HAFFAF, Abdelmadjid MEGHEBBAR
The architecture design of instrumentation of a system is crucial for improving the monitoring of industrial processes. Indeed, the position of the sensors and their numbers play a very important role in the monitoring of a system. This paper presents a new approach to sensor placement in order to monitor element failures defined in specifications. It relies on computing a linking in tripartite graph. The latter is obtained from Bondgraph model, which in turn represents an industrial physical plant.
Keywords: Bondgraph, tripartite graph, monitoring, linking, sensor placement, observability degree
