Şişecam Project

Project Title: Increasing the Production Efficiency of Nano Coating in a Wide Area with the Support of Artificial Intelligence

Customer Institution: Turkey Şişe ve Cam (Bottle and Glass) Factories Inc.

Project Manager: Utku Er

Consortium Members:  



In the project, it is aimed to increase the production efficiency with the artificial intelligence supported decision support system in the glass coating lines in the magnetic field. In this production process, each material is coated as a single layer and measurements are taken before the formation of multiple layers on flat glasses in the magnetic field splash glass coating lines, and it is aimed to achieve the desired target values with high precision (coating thickness homogeneity sensitivity). In line with the results obtained during the production of the single layers, the changes to be made in the process parameters are decided based on the experience of the device operator. Therefore, the operator spends an average of 1-2 hours for the production of a single layer of each material by doing many repetitions (in the range of 5-10). This situation reduces the final product production efficiency.

The main purpose of the project is to produce single layers with a thickness homogeneity tolerance of 1% in maximum 2 repetitions (in less time than the standard method) with artificial intelligence/machine learning.

In the project, the setting process of the silicon nitride (Si3N4) single layer will be made independent of the operator, thereby increasing the production efficiency. In this context, by providing decision support to the operator with the support of artificial intelligence and/or predicting the trim gas flow adjustment, Si3N4 single layer optimization in Şişecam's wide-area production processes will shorten the production transition time and prevent consumable cost losses. With the artificial intelligence/machine learning algorithms and optimization model to be developed in cooperation with the National Defense University and SGE Engineering in the project, the production data that Şişecam monitors and controls in the production processes will be collected and analyzed, and the adjustment parameters that affect the coating homogeneity in the production will be determined without the need for personnel decision. With the communication technology to be developed by SGE Engineering, data in Şişecam coating production systems will be collected and processed and machine communication will be provided.

Polat Enerji Project

Project Title: Artificial Learning Based Decision Support System for Predictive Maintenance Activities in Wind Turbines Using Direct Drive Technology

Customer Institution: Polat Enerji Industry and Trade Inc.

Project Manager: Emre Vardareli

Consortium Members:  



This project aims to develop solutions with data-based artificial intelligence algorithms for the efficiency and maintenance planning needs of fields producing energy with wind turbines with direct drive technology in Turkey. This solution will help stable production by pre-detection and diagnosis of anomalies that may occur in equipment and processes in wind farms. Thus, it will help increase the profitability of clean energy investments and encourage investments in this field. The aim of the project consists of three steps:

  1. By developing artificial intelligence solutions, to determine the relationship of SCADA data collected from Enercon brand direct drive (gearless) wind turbines with each other and with the faults that cause the turbine to stop.
  2. With a predictive maintenance approach, reducing turbine downtimes due to possible failures, shifting turbine downtimes to periods of lower production or no production, instead of periods with high wind speed with significant production.
  3. Thus, converting more of the kinetic energy potential hidden in the wind into electrical energy.

The solution planned in the project is the development of an artificial learning-based decision support system that can support predictive maintenance applications in wind power plants. Predictive maintenance includes the continuous monitoring of processes by means of sensors placed on equipment and the detection and diagnosis of failures before they occur by using statistical or artificial learning techniques on these data, thus making maintenance planning with the help of these decision support systems. In this context, it is aimed to create artificial learning-based normal behavior models by using historical sensor data of critical and auxiliary equipment, to ensure that these models produce optimum results, and to perform model performance tests with data collected from wind field equipment. These trained models will be able to work in cloud-based systems, automatically generate fault flags using instant sensor flow data and send notifications to the relevant field personnel. Many predictive machine learning models will be tested and the final batch modeling methods combining them will be developed.

The aims planned to be achieved in the project are listed below:

  • Supporting the maintenance plans of turbine equipment with a predictive maintenance strategy with models learned from the historical data of each equipment.
  • Contributing to optimum process management by modeling the process parameters (parameter group) of wind power plant processes with artificial learning.
  • As a result of data-based and optimizing process and maintenance plan management, a more efficient and high-availability plant is obtained.
  • Enabling the turbines to work more efficiently by contributing to the time management of the maintenance, repair and operational tasks of the final product maintenance and operation teams at the power plant.

  • The project will also be able to improve the prediction system according to new data defined by machine learning.
  • Thanks to the project output, it will be beneficial in terms of sustainability and economy by reducing the consumption of chemicals and water, with the rapid delivery of formulations closest to the expected target.
  • The machine learning model and digital experiment library software to be developed will function as an intelligent experiment and raw material composition optimization decision support software belonging to the model digital library software family to be developed using artificial intelligence.
