Expert System Design for Fault Diagnosis in Diesel Engines

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this work it’s presented the design and development of a Diagnosis Expert System for Hyundai Diesel Engines CRDi 2.0, that has been created based on the expertise handle by two experts that can give an accurate fault diagnosis for this kind of engine, considering the causes and can give the appropriate actions to be taken. This system is feed with data obtained by Condition Based Maintenance techniques, which allows incorporating a failure isolation and identification procedure based on the data. The Expert System is developed using HTML code, and a Hyundai Diesel Engines CRDi 2.0 database is created including relevant information concerning: engine specifications, operating values, faults, causes and recommended procedures for each situation. Finally, the structure of the developed system is presented, considering that it uses Condition Based Maintenance data and is embedded in a Computerized Maintenance Management System.
