Abnormal Detection Using Two-Stage Method in Combined Power Plant



Published Sep 4, 2023
Yun Hee Kim Suk Joo Bae


Complex systems, such as power plants, demand precise and reliable anomaly detection mechanisms. Traditional supervised learning approaches often fall short due to the challenges of imbalanced data and the scarcity of labeled abnormal instances. This paper introduces a two-stage methodology to address these challenges. The first stage emphasizes feature engineering, mitigating redundant sensor effects, and reducing dimensionality through Kmeans clustering and PCA. The second stage employs an LSTM-Autoencoder for abnormal event detection. Validated using data from a combined power plant, our approach demonstrates superior performance over existing techniques in terms of accuracy and computational efficiency. This research not only advances the field of anomaly detection in power plants but also offers insights for other complex systems.
