"The Design of a Multi-Agent Transformer Condition Monitoring System"

in the IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, Vol 19, No 4, November 2004, pp. 1845-1852
In recent years the need for improved monitoring systems has necessitated the application of intelligent systems. In this study, a multi-agent system (MAS) is used for vibration condition monitoring. The system consists of functional agents such as feature extraction agent, interpretation agent, diagnosis agent, engineering assistant agent and registry agent. Support vector machine (SVM), multi-layer perceptron (MLP) and extension neural network (ENN) are used as interpretation agent. The rationale behind using multi-agent system for condition monitoring is explained. Experimental results show that multi-agent system is an effective artificial intelligence techniques for condition monitoring.
