Current shipboard gas turbine environments are in need of updating to reduce stressful, inadequate conditions on operators, and to provide improved casualty monitoring procedures for increased equipment longevity and reduced operating costs. These necessary improvements may be realized through a marine gas turbine health monitoring system capable of taking corrective control measures. Adequate technology exists today for such a system, as evidenced by two similar gas turbine diagnostic expert systems currently being tested by the Army and Air Force. Expert system tools such as CLIPS would significantly reduce the time, cost and integration difficulties in establishing a marine gas turbine expert system. This paper is an overview of published literature on Expert Systems and their current applications, with an evaluation of their potential for use in the marine gas turbine arena. Keywords: Marine gas turbine, Diagnostics, Expert systems. (JES)
