The benefits of machinery monitoring and condition-based maintenance may be significantly enhancedby integrating real-time diagnostics & prognostics techniques within the framework of an automaticcontrol system. The integration of prognostics with control provides unique opportunities for dynamiccompensating control and ultimately for managing and optimizing asset utilization.

A. in Physics from the University of California (Riverside) and B.S.M.E. and M.S.M.E. degrees from California State University (Los Angeles).
Next Generation Pump Systems Enable New Opportunities for Asset Management and Economic Optimization
There is growing interest in cost-effective techniques that can detect the earliest stage of degradationor malfunction and predict machinery failure. New diagnostic and prognostic techniques may beeffectively coupled with novel control techniques in the context of an intelligent motor-pump-controlsystem. An integrated intelligent system is described for pumping applications that can sense theoperating condition and health of the components of a hydraulic system and automatically change theoperation of the motor-pump system. The change in control is goal-directed whereby the prescribedoperating change is intended to achieve previously defined operating goals or performance objectives.The operation of an intelligent motor-pump system in an integrated, coordinated manner can achieveunprecedented and important capabilities for protecting critical processes, process equipment,operations personnel, and the environment. This system also provides a basis for dynamic optimizationof critical operating and financial objectives such as longest MTBF, lowest life-cycle cost, or lowestcost per gallon pumped. Future intelligent systems will provide the basis for next generation CBMsystems, future distributed intelligent systems, and autonomous, agent-based systems.
