Allwein, E.L., Schapire, R.E. and Singer, Y. (2001) Reducing Multiclass to Binary: A Unifying Approach for Margin Classifier. Journal of Machinery Learning and Research, 1, 113-141.
ABSTRACT: Missing values are prevalent in real-world datasets and they may reduce predictive performance of a learning algorithm. Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA), one of the most deployable methods for detecting and predicting incipient faults in power transformers is one of the casualties. Thus, this paper proposes filling-in the missing values found in a DGA dataset using the k-nearest neighbor imputation method with two different distance metrics: Euclidean and Cityblock. Thereafter, using these imputed datasets as inputs, this study applies Support Vector Machine (SVM) to built models which are used to classify transformer faults. Experimental results are provided to show the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
