Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
In this paper, for minimizing the cost from the ocean generator power production by optimizing the operation and maintenance (O&M) policy over an infinite time horizon, while considering the uncertainty of the renewable sources and components failure behaviors, we develop a self-healing framework for ocean energy systems. It consists of three major modules: data manipulation, health assessment, and decision-making. Specifically, a graph-theoretic approach is first proposed for ocean generator health monitoring utilizing multivariate time-series data, then, reinforcement learning (RL) based technique exploits the health states of the system that provides decision support for optimal O&M management.
