A method for diagnosing the existence and the kind of faults in blades of a Gas Turbine compressor is presented in the present paper. The innovative feature of this method is that it performs the diagnosis automatically, namely it gives a direct answer to whether a fault exists and what fault it is, without requiring the interpretation of results by a human expert. This is achieved by the derivation of the values of discriminants calculated from spectral patterns of fast response measurement data. A decision about the corresponding Engine status is then derived according to the values of these discriminants. In the paper, the procedure of examining the suitability of particular parameter discriminants and the constitution of a related knowledge base is described. The way of derivation of decisions by a computer, on what engine condition a particular measurement data set corresponds, is then described.
