Jose Celaya and Abhinav Saxena Conduct Electronics Prognostics Tutorial at European PHM Society Conference

A tutorial on “Prognostics for Electronics” was given at the European Conference of the Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) Society in Nantes, France. Technical tutorials on various topics in health management taught by industry experts are one of the unique features of the PHM conferences. As educational events, these tutorials provide a comprehensive introduction to the state-of-the-art in the tutorial’s topic and are open to all conference attendees. Additionally, these tutorials are also made openly available to anyone through the PHM Society’s website.

BACKGROUND: Given the increase in use of electronic components in aerospace systems, health management and prognostics are becoming key contributors to system resilience against failures. The focus of this tutorial was on prognostics of electronic systems. Special attention was given to model-based prognostics methods for electronic components like power transistors and filter capacitors. This included modeling of the degradation processes and how to make use of such models in order to assess the condition-based state of health and to predict remaining useful life. A discussion on how these model-based approaches relate to the electronics reliability tools was presented with emphasis on differences and similarities, but with the main objective of conveying how such approaches complement each other.

NASA PROGRAM FUNDING: The work presented was funded in part by the System-wide Safety Assurance Technologies (SSAT) project, Aviation Safety Program (AvSP), Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD).
