In this article, we propose a fault detection and assessment technique for instrumentation and control cables based on time-frequency image classification using the faster region-based convolutional neural network (R-CNN). To train the faster R-CNN while compensating for multiple reflections, the reflected signal estimation is utilized, which divides the reflected signal into the signal propagation along the cable and the reflection from the impedance discontinuity point. Experimental results on two fault scenarios under the circumstance of multiple faults detection and branched networks demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
