The qualitative and quantitative fault mode described with core parameter is obtained by applying automatic Hazard and Operability Analysis (HAZOP) based on Signed Directed Graph (SDG) to the results of artificial HAZOP. And it proposed fault model to key parameters, combined with various fault diagnosis methods, research and development of qualitative and quantitative reasoning engine management for use in abnormal conditions. On this basis, it developed a software prototype of abnormal situation management system for petrochemical process. At last, the software is used in an actual process used to verify the validity of the technology.
