In Chaos (Woodbury, N.Y.) ; h5-index 0.0

We conduct an experimental study on early detection of thermoacoustic combustion oscillations using a method combining statistical complexity and machine learning, including the characterization of intermittent combustion oscillations. Abrupt switching from aperiodic small-amplitude oscillations to periodic large-amplitude oscillations and vice versa appears in pressure fluctuations. The dynamic behavior of aperiodic small-amplitude pressure fluctuations represents chaos. The complexity-entropy causality plane effectively captures the subtle changes in the combustion state during a transition to well-developed combustion oscillations. The feature space of the complexity-entropy causality plane, which is obtained by a support vector machine, has potential use for detecting a precursor of combustion oscillations.
