dc.description.abstract This work is aimed towards the development of an artificially intelligent search algorithm used in conjunction with an Auto Associative Neural Network (AANN) to help locate and reconstruct faulty sensor inputs in control systems. The AANN can be trained to detect when sensors go faulty but the problem of locating the faulty sensor still remains. The search algorithm aids the AANN to help locate the faulty sensors and reconstruct their actual values. The algorithm uses domain specific heuristics based on the inherent behavior of the AANN to achieve its task. Common sensor errors such as drift, shift and random errors and the algorithms response to them have been studied. The issue of noise has also been investigated. These areas cover the first part of this work. The second part focuses on the development of a web interface that implements and displays the working of the algorithm. The interface allows any client on the World Wide Web to connect to the engineering software called MATLAB. The client can then simulate a drift, shift or random error using the graphical user interface and observe the response of the algorithm. en_US
