The features of linear performance diagnostic methods are discussed, in comparison to methods based on full non-linear calculation of performance deviations, for the purpose of condition monitoring and diagnostics. First, the theoretical background of linear methods is overviewed to establish a relationship to the principles used by non-linear methods. Then computational procedures are discussed and compared. The effectiveness of determining component performance deviations by the two types of approaches is examined, on different types of diagnostic situations. A way of establishing criteria to define whether non-linear methods have to be employed is presented. An overall assessment of merits or weaknesses of the two types of methods is attempted, based on the results presented in the paper.
