Design of a Digital Twin for an Industrial Vacuum Process: A Predictive Maintenance Approach

Abstract : The concept of a digital twin is increasingly appearing in industrial applications, including the field of predictive maintenance. A digital twin is a virtual representation of a physical system containing all data available on site. This paper presents condition monitoring of ventilation systems through the digital twin approach. A literature review regarding the most popular system faults is covered. The motor current signature analysis is used in this research to detect system faults. The physical system is further described. Then, based on the free body diagram concept and Newton’s second law, the equations of motion are obtained. Matlab/Simulink software is used to build the digital twin. The Concordia method and the Fast Fourier Transform analysis are used to process the current signal, and physical and numerical system current measurements are obtained and compared. In the final step of the modeling, specific frequencies were adjusted in the twin to achieve the best simulation. In addition, a statistical approach is used to create a complete diagnostic protocol.
