Abstract: In this study, a procedure of testing and evaluation on the noise quality of cooling system is presented. Both the experimental analysis of cooling system and the simulation analysis of noise parameters using Neural Network (NN) are implemented. An Intelligent Data Acquisition and a microphone are used to measure the system noise. Different types of NN are used to investigate the noise parameters. The results show that Radial Basis Neural Network (RBNN) gives superior performance for predicting the noise of cooling system.
The main purpose of this investigation is to obtain the robust and adaptive neural network predictor. The noise analysis of cooling system has been examined by using fourth types of artificial neural networks. The result obtained show that RBNN has superior prediction for adapting noise parameters of the cooling system. The structure of an RBNN is unusual in that the constitution of its hidden units is entirely different from that of its output units. RBNN with radial-basis function and fast convergence properties has also great possibility in real-time prediction and analyze noise.
