Abstract

This work contributes to the techniques used for SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system data completion in databases containing historical water sensor signals from a water supplier company. Our approach addresses the data restoration problem in two stages. In the first stage, we treat one-dimensional signals by estimating missing data through the combination of two linear predictor filters, one working forwards and one backwards. In the second stage, the data are tensorized to take advantage of the underlying structures at five minute, one day, and one week intervals. Subsequently, a low-range approximation of the tensor is constructed to correct the first stage of the data restoration. This technique requires an offset compensation to guarantee the continuity of the signal at the two ends of the burst. To check the effectiveness of the proposed method, we performed statistical tests by deleting bursts of known sizes in a complete tensor and contrasting different strategies in terms of their performance. For the type of data used, the results show that the proposed data completion approach outperforms other methods, the difference becoming more evident as the size of the bursts of missing data grows.
