In this paper, in order to address the well-known ‘sensitivity’ problems associated with K-means clustering, a real-coded Genetic Algorithms (GA) is incorporated into K-means clustering. The result of the hybridisation is an enhanced search algorithm obtained by incorporating the local search capability rendered by the hill-climbing optimisation with the global search ability provided by GAs. The proposed algorithm has been compared with other clustering algorithms under the same category using an artificial data set and a benchmark problem. Results show, in all cases, that the proposed algorithm outperforms its counterparts in terms of global search capability. Moreover, the scalability of the proposed algorithm to high-dimensional problems featuring a large number of data points has been validated using an application to compress field data sets from sub-15MW industry gas turbines, during commissioning. Such compressed field data is expected to result in more efficient and more accurate sensor fault detection.
