2013 Measurement Science Review  
The prediction of fouling in condenser is heavily influenced by the periodic fouling process and dynamics change of the operational parameters, to deal with this problem, a novel approach based on fuzzy stage identification and Chebyshev neural network is proposed. In the approach, the overall fouling is separated into hard fouling and soft fouling, the variation trends of these two kinds of fouling are approximated by using Chebyshev neural network, respectively, in order to make the
