This talk presents a real case study on the degradation analysis for cooling systems. We start with an introduction to the problem and a quick review on the methods available for degradation modeling and data analysis. Then, we show how a degradation model for cooling systems can be constructed based on both statistics and basic physical principles. Finally, predictive maintenance plans are developed for system maintenance. The main goal of this talk is to demonstrate how degradation analysis and predictive maintenance are performed in practice, through a simple use case.
