This paper describes existing, developing, and needed methods for detection, identification, and diagnosis of problems in combustion turbines. The use of combustion turbines for electrical power generation is growing, and advanced models of large industrial turbines are now starting to enter service. In view of the harsh operating conditions and severe service to which these new turbines will be exposed, this paper evaluates sensors and signal analysis methods to detect and diagnose the problems which may surface in operation. Generic problems which have been observed in combustion turbine installations in the recent past are identified, and methods for detecting these problems, quantifying them, and isolating their causes are analyzed.
