The paper dwells upon the experience of operating condition monitoring systems for hazardous production facilities of power, mining, metallurgy and transport industries.
The paper shows the difference between the machinery parameter monitoring systems and condition monitoring systems. Parameter monitoring systems measure parameters of physical processes, however, without determining the causes of their change. Condition monitoring systems not only determine the change of physical parameters, but also the causes of their changes.
Those systems use algorithms of a real-time automatic decision-making expert system with an automatic machinery malfunction diagnosing, automatically show the personnel which actions should be made in order to eliminate the malfunctions.
Sometimes such systems in Russia are called “vibration monitoring systems”. The term “real-time” when referring to condition monitoring means that the speed of determining parameter measuring, condition evaluation, and depiction of the diagnostic results have to be adjusted to the speed of the machine’s degradation and exceed it by a few times in order to eliminate outliners and increase reliability of the diagnosis, along with creation of time reserve for making a management decision and carrying out all necessary actions.
Technical and economic efficiency indicators for the monitoring systems application are given in the paper.
