The Tennessee Eastman Process (TEP) is a frequently used benchmark in chemical engineering research. An extended simulator, published in 2015, enables a more in-depth investigation of TEP, featuring additional, scalable process disturbances as well as an extended list of variables. Even though the simulator has been used multiple times since its release, the lack of a standardized reference dataset impedes direct comparisons of methods. In this contribution we present an extensive reference dataset, incorporating repeat simulations of healthy and faulty process data, additional measurements and multiple magnitudes for all process disturbances. All six production modes of TEP as well as mode transitions and operating points in a region around the modes are simulated. We further perform fault-detection based on principal component analysis combined with and charts using average run length as a performance metric to provide an initial benchmark for statistical process monitoring schemes for the presented data.
