Anomaly detection refers to detecting data points, events, or behaviour that do not comply with expected or normal behaviour. For example, a typical problem related to anomaly detection on an industrial level is having little labelled data and a few run-to-failure examples, making it challenging to develop reliable and accurate prognostics and health management systems for fault detection and identification. Certain machine learning approaches for anomaly detection require normal data to train, which reduces the need for historical data with fault labels, where the main task is to differentiate between normal and anomalous behaviour. Several reconstruction-based deep learning approaches are explored in this work and compared towards detecting anomalies in air compressors. Anomalies in such systems are not point-anomalies, but instead, an increasing deviation from the normal condition as the system components start to degrade. In this paper, a descriptive range of the deviation based on the reconstruction-based techniques is proposed. Most anomaly detection approaches are considered black box models, predicting whether an event should be considered an anomaly or not. This paper proposes a method for increasing the transparency and explainability of reconstruction-based anomaly detection to indicate which parts of a system contribute to the deviation from expected behaviour. The results show that the proposed methods detect abnormal behaviour in air compressors accurately and reliably and indicate why it deviates. The proposed approach is capable of detecting faults without the need for historical examples of similar faults. The proposed method for explainable anomaly detection is crucial to any prognostics and health management (PHM) system due to its purpose of detecting deviations and identifying causes.
