Real-time Fault Detection and Diagnosis of modern dynamic process plants are continuously receiving increasing attention both theoretically and practically. In recent years, attempts have been made to apply Artificial Intelligence techniques to the Fault Detection Diagnosis task for improving the operational reliability of complex dynamic plants. The aim of this paper is to discuss the basic concepts, issues and tools of some of the emerging intelligence technologies for Fault Detection and Diagnosis schemes. The emphasis is given to the methods, which are based on Artificial Intelligent systems and which are appropriate for diagnosing faults in complex dynamic plants.
