Article
In energy or communication networks, cables are omnipresent. Like any other systems, they are subject to faults. Faults in cables are divided into two families: soft faults and hard faults. Soft faults are faults that do not affect the data and/or energy transfer. However, over time they tend to turn into hard faults that can lead to a total system...

Fault detection and diagnosis are crucial to reducing risks and costs in any process. The identification of the propagation path and the variables responsible for faulty operating conditions is also vital.

Multivariate statistical process monitoring methods usually assume the Gaussianity of data. However, in practice, data are multi-modal. Therefore, it is not always reasonable and enough to use methods that only deal with the data overall covariance matrix. As the latter may wrap less information compared to the data distribution. Also, such prior a...
