ABSTRACT
Analogue (and addressable) fire detection systems enables a new quality in improving sensitivity to real fires and reducing susceptibility to nuisance alarm sources. Different decision algorithms types were developed with intention to improve sensitivity and reduce false alarm occurrence. At the beginning, it was free alarm level adjustment based on preset level. Majority of multi-criteria decision work was based on multi-sensor (multi-signature) decision algorithms - using different type of sensors on the same location or, rather, using different aspects (level and rise) of one sensor measured value. Our idea is to improve sensitivity and reduce false alarm occurrence by forming groups of sensors that work in similar conditions (same world side in the building, same or similar technology or working time). Original multi-criteria decision algorithms based on level, rise and difference of level and rise from group average are discussed in this paper.
