Learning Outcomes
After completing the course the student will be able to: • Understand different aspects of a real engine operational behaviour, and instrumentation procedures for measured variables. • Examine what if scenarios with the use of performance simulation models • Calculate critical engine component health indices based on parameters such as compressor and turbine efficiencies.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Adapt to new situations
  • Make decisions
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in an international context
  • Work in an interdisciplinary team
Course Content (Syllabus)
Basic principles of turbomachinery operation. Pumps, compressors, steam and gas turbines. Gas turbine performance simulation under steady-state and transient conditions. Engine health monitoring, fault detection and diagnostic principles. Experimental and model-based techniques. Fault diagnosis based on thermodynamic performance, and gas path analysis. Applications of statistical methods (maximum likelihood, Bayesian inference) and knowledge based techniques (neural networks, fuzzy systems) to machinery and process fault detection and isolation. Optimal sensor location methodology. Demonstrations of existing integrated diagnostic systems (developed in house).
