  The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) cryogenic infrastructure is composed of many equipment, among them there are the cryogenic valves widely used in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) cryogenic facility. At present time, diagnostic solutions that can be integrated into the process control systems, capable to identify leak failures in valves bellows, are not available. The authors goal has been the development of a system that allows the detection of helium leaking valves during normal operation using available data extracted from the control system. The design constraints has driven the development towards a solution integrated in the monitoring systems in use, not requiring manual interventions. The methodology presented in this article is based on the extraction of distinctive features (analyzing the data in time and frequency domain) which are exploited in the next phase of machine learning. The aim is to identify a list of candidate valves with a high probability of helium leakage. The proposed methodology, which is at very early stage now, with the evolution of the data set and the iterative approach is aiming toward a cryogenic valves targeted maintenance.

  The CERN cryogenic facilities demand a versatile, distributed, homogeneous and highly reliable control system. For this purpose, CERN conceived and developed several frameworks (JCOP, UNICOS, FESA, CMW), based on current industrial technologies and COTS equipment, such as PC, PLC and SCADA systems complying with the requested constraints. The cryogenic control system nowadays uses these frameworks and allows the joint development of supervision and control layers by defining a common structure for specifications and code documentation. Such a system is capable of sharing control variable from all accelerator apparatus. The first implementation of this control architecture started in 2000 for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Since then CERN continued developing the hardware and software components of the cryogenic control system, based on the exploitation of the experience gained. These developments are always aimed to increase the safety and to improve the performance. The final part will present the evolution of the cryogenic control toward an integrated control system SOA based CERN using the Reference Architectural Model Industrie 4.0 (RAMI 4.0).
