The development of an adaptive performance model for multi-spool gas turbines, equipped with the possibility of water injection is described. The model covers water injection at engine inlet, between the compressors and at the compressor exit. The selection of modification factors and the procedure for adapting component characteristics to overall performance data is discussed. A case of adaptation to overall performances is presented. The use of the model for studying overall engine and components performance is demonstrated. It is shown how operation with water injection modifies component operation, a fact that allows the identification of a wider range of the performance characteristics, in comparison to dry operation. This fact may also increase the diagnostic ability of techniques employing adaptive models. The sensitivity of diagnostic procedures to the different modes of operation of a gas turbine of the type described in the paper is also discussed.
