Abstract
Impact Technologies, in cooperation with Pratt & Whitney, proposes the development of real-time engine test facility monitoring and diagnostic software that is capable of model-based fault detection of engine sensor signals using an economically adaptedreduced-order engine model tuned from test cell measurements. This advanced engine test cell monitoring software will perform real-time assessments of engine-installed transducers as well as the test facility hardware itself. Data validity will berigorously analyzed in real-time using a combination of signal processing and model-based techniques to ensure highly reliable signal fault detection and minimized false alarms. This proposal has been submitted after discussions with Pratt & Whitney andengine test facility engineers who consistently cite the need for improved test facility data analysis. This advanced engine monitoring software will be developed with direct input from test facility engineers/technicians and OEM expertise in terms oftheir experience with
