Predictive maintenance involves condition monitoring, fault detection and prediction of remaining useful life or forthcoming failures. Predictive maintenance systems for steam turbine engines offer detection, classification, and prediction (or prognosis) of potential critical component failures, and ensures substantially reducing the cost of repair and replacement of defective parts, and may even result in saving lives. This paper describes a Kalman filter based neural network approach to provide performance evaluation and residual life prediction with the objectives of improving availability and implementing maintenance before failure occurs by estimating degradation severity and the proper timing for replacement. The approach has been applied to a steam turbine blade fatigue experiment testbed to illustrate the prognostic functionalities of the methodology.
