Keywords: Condition monitoring, Extended Kalman Filtering, hydro power plant, fault detection, hydraulic performance

Abstract: Extended Kalman Filtering (EKF) is applied to the condition monitoring of hydro-power production plants. This method is well suited to real-time failure detection and identification. This paper presents one important application: monitoring of hydraulic performance of hydro-power plants.
