Abstract

The concept and development of a prototype diagnostic decision support system for real-time control and monitoring of dynamical processes is presented. This decision support system, diagnostic evaluation and corrective action (DECA), uses qualitative reasoning, in conjunction with quantitative models, for monitoring and diagnosis of malfunctions and disruptions in dynamical processes under routine operations and emergency situations. DECA is especially suited for application to time-constrained environments where immediate action is needed to avoid catastrophic failure(s). DECA is written in common Lisp and has been implemented on a Symbolics 3670 machine; its efficacy has been verified using the data from the Three Mile Island No. 2 nuclear reactor accident.
