Issues on Applying Knowledge-Based Techniques in Real-Time Control Systems

Doina Zmaranda, Helga Silaghi, Gianina Gabor, Codruta Vancea

Abstract


At the time being knowledge-based systems are used in almost all life aspects. The main reason for trying to use knowledge-based systems in real-time control is to reduce cognitive load on users (overload), their application proving to be important when conventional techniques have failed or are not sufficiently effective [1]. The development of automated diagnosis techniques and systems can help also to minimize downtime and maintain efficient output. This paper presents some issues of applying knowledge-based systems to real-time control systems. It describes and analyzes the main issues concerning the real-time domain and provides possible solutions, such as a set of requirements that a real-time knowledge-based system must satisfy. The paper proposes a possible architecture for applying knowledge-based techniques in real-time control systems. Finally, a way of employing knowledge-based techniques  for extending the existing automatic control and monitoring system for the geothermal plant from the University of Oradea is presented.
