Abstract : The development and testing of hardware and software for a microprocessor-based monitoring system for gas turbines is described in this paper. The operators of gas turbines can be trained to monitor running hours, slip between high and low pressure compressor spools and torque on the reduction gear-box under various conditions of operation. The system will replace the traditional method of monitoring these parameters which are more time consuming and error prone.
