Abstract : This lecture note discusses the role of computer modelling in the design, development and validation of a performance monitoring system. The basic requirements of an engine health monitoring system are discussed in the context of the user environment. A form of model based on stage characteristics provides the basis for describing engine measurements. Faults are modelled in accordance with empirical data obtained from tests conducted at the stage level. The model is used to investigate various parameters that provide unambiguous identification of the fault in question. Fault libraries have been developed for field use.
