Equipment failure prognostics aims at the prediction of the equipment future health condition. For this, a model is trained to fit the monitored data of the condition of the equipment. This can be quite difficult and complicated with large and nonmonotonic data. Peaks in nonmonotonic data are data values which are much larger than the others. For nonmonotonic degradation processes, it can be more efficient to predict the time and value of the peaks during the evolution of the condition of the equipment. In this paper, we propose a framework to predict the values of the future peaks. More specifically, data-driven models are trained to predict the next peak values, based on the information of the peaks in the historical data. The trained models are, then, used to predict the next peak values. A real case study regarding the leakage of the first seal of a reactor coolant pump in a nuclear power plant is considered to verify the effectiveness of the proposed prediction framework.
