Data-driven state monitoring requiring a little priori knowledge plays a key role for timely fault detection and is therefore of great importance for the safe and economical operation of the thermal power plant. The main drawback for most of the existing data-driven methods is the complex procedure of data preprocessing and model training especially when unlabelled operating data is used. To overcome this issue, this paper proposes a new framework of data-driven state monitoring approach for

In the first step, density peaks clustering(DPC) is performed on the historical data to generate labels for the data. Then in the second step, evidential K-nearest neighbour(EKNN) method is used to monitor the current state based on the labelled historical data and operating data. Verifications on operating data of an air preheater system of a 1000MW thermal power plant show that the proposed method can identify various air leakage states accurately and efficiently.
