A Diagnostic Model of a gas turbine naval propulsion system has been developed. The purpose of this model is to provide a means of diagnosing engine problems, either on board ship or at shore based facilities, and to provide a basis for personnel training. The model is based on a thermodynamic description of the major components of the engine and provides the ability to simulate common engine faults through modification of component data. The Diagnostic Model has been implemented on a general purpose 16 bit microcomputer and has been validated using available data from DDH-280 class machinery. The model is sufficiently flexible that any conventional layout of gas turbine can be described. The use of the model in the role of EHM is considered. It is recognised that, with the availability of manpower and equipment, data can readily be collected. Interpretation of these data is, however, a complex task requiring both trained personnel and sophisticatd analysis procedures. The model provides a means of testing diagnoses, generating fault patterns and training of engineering personnel.
