An increasingly competitive business environment has been concentrated on industries to reduce the operating costs. Industries such as gas, oil, petrochemical, chemical, and electric power have employed for the operation and used for large equipment or structures that require a high capital investment. In order to meet these requirements, the industries are increasingly moving toward saving the experimental verification and computer simulation. Therefore industries to reduce the maintenance costs without compromising the operational safety have been forced on finding for better and more efficient methods to inspect their equipment and structures. In this study, it focused on the development the real-time non-contract monitoring system as an efficient tool for the experimental study of weld defects based on the relationship between the measured voltage and input parameters.
