Upcoming Webinar

Predictive Maintenance in MATLAB and Simulink

23 June 2017
15:00 IST


In this webinar we will use machine learning in MATLAB and physical modeling in Simulink to demonstrate predictive maintenance concepts. Using data from a real world example, we will explore importing, pre-processing, and labeling data, as well as selecting features, and training and comparing multiple machine learning models. We will then consider a grid connected generation plant to demonstrate how a physical model of equipment can be used to complement machine learning techniques, by providing a platform to generate fault data for machine learning methods, and as an additional paradigm for monitoring system degradation.


  • Developing larger scale physical simulations
  • Using Big Data with simulations
  • Estimating model parameters from measured data
  • Prototyping, testing, and refining predictive models using machine learning methods
  • Combining physical modeling and machine learning techniques for predictive maintenance
