The statistical identification result using Artificial Neural Network: A 3-layer BP neural network was utilized for gas identification, in which 12 sets of data (3 types of reducing gases, 4 concentrations for each type of gas) were considered as training data and 1 set of data (125 ppm CO) as test data for simple validation. The initial weights of different layers were randomly generated. To evaluate the performance in terms of the prediction robustness, the prediction results were obtained by repeatedly running 1,000 times and acquiring the statistical distribution.
