Predictive maintenance of rotational machinery using deep learning

Mohamed Iyad Ali, Nai Shyan Lai, Raed Abdulla


This paper describes an implementation of a deep learning-based predictive maintenance (PdM) system for industrial rotational machinery, built upon the foundation of a long short-term memory (LSTM) autoencoder and regression analysis. The autoencoder identifies anomalous patterns, while the latter, based on the autoencoder’s output, estimates the machine’s remaining useful life (RUL). Unlike prior PdM systems dependent on labelled historical data, the developed system doesn’t require it as it’s based on an unsupervised deep learning model, enhancing its adaptability. The paper also explores a robust condition monitoring system that collects machine operational data, including vibration and current parameters, and transmits them to a database via a Bluetooth low energy (BLE) network. Additionally, the study demonstrates the integration of this PdM system within a web-based framework, promoting its adoption across various industrial settings. Tests confirm the system's ability to accurately identify faults, highlighting its potential to reduce unexpected downtime and enhance machinery reliability.
