MONITORING AND DIAGNOSING PROCESS DEVIATIONS IN MARINE DIESEL ENGINES

This paper describes the basic principles and recent experience with condition monitoring and fault diagnosis in marine diesel engines. From failure mode analysis and failure distributions it is shown that condition-based maintenance should be the main element in a maintenance system for diesel engines. A condition monitoring system forms the basis of a condition-based maintenance system. Three different condition monitoring systems are described. A survey of monitoring objectives as well as system lay out and service experiences is given.
