Profile Information

The Centre for Efficiency and Performance Engineering (CEPE) aims to scope and sensitivity of machinery fault detection and diagnosis and of plant performance and emissions monitoring. Headed by Professor Andrew Ball, the CEPE at the University of Huddersfield is the largest independent group of its type in the world. Its mission is to tackle real-world problems using the most practical and accessible means possible. 

The Centre specialises in vibro-acoustics, vibro impacts, instantaneous angular speed and instantaneous electric current analysis, dagnostic model development, signal processing, feature extraction, pattern recognition, sensor development, non-intrusive parameter estimation and model based fault diagnosis. Internationally recognised as one of the world's leading research organisations in the field of plant condition and performance monitoring, our researchers have been developing capabilities for various machines since 1991.
