The accurate determination of a gas turbine’s condition has been a goal of Marine Engineers for many years. Several techniques have been developed to accomplish this task, but no single method can diagnose all the various conditions and faults that may occur. Rather, a combination of techniques is usually employed to assess condition. This paper analyzes the use of expert systems to combine condition monitoring techniques and shows how a practical expert system may be designed to act as a decision making tool in the condition monitoring of gas turbines.
