Abstract

The development and application of marine current energy are attracting more and more attention in the world. Due to the hardness of its working environment, it is important and difficult to study the fault diagnosis of marine current generation system. In this paper, underwater image is chosen as the fault diagnosing signal after different sensors are compared. This paper proposes a diagnosis method based on the sparse autoencoder (SA) and softmax regression (SR). The SA is used to extract the features and SR is used to classify them. Images are used to monitor whether the blade is attached by benthos and to determine its corresponding degree of attachment. Compared with the other techniques, experiment results show that the proposed method can diagnose the blade attachment with higher accuracy.
