An Expert System for Remote Monitoring and Fault Diagnosis of Railway Locomotives

In this paper, the research area of real-time monitoring and fault diagnosis of locomotives is introduced. Also included are the collecting, categorizing and analyzing the real-time data of the on-board equipment, as well as the application of new technologies such as the real-time data transferring between the on-board equipment and off-board equipment, the fault warning and the analysis of the fault changing trend, and the automatic generation solutions for the fault. The research of the collection, categorization and analysis of the locomotives and the onboard equipment is studied deeply. Combined with the situation of the Chinese railway, a database of locomotive fault is constructed. And by the expert system and information technology, codes and the description of the real-time fault information can be fully collected. Based on a preliminary assessment of fuzzy matching on the fault library, a solutions database is constructed. Finally, the benefits of the expert system in safety operations and locomotive maintenance are summarized.
