A review of U.S. Navy experience in the development of a shipboard gas turbine condition monitoring system (CMS) is presented. The system considered was developed for use with the 20,000 HP General Electric, LM2500 main propulsion gas turbine engines used on the Navy’s DD-963 class destroyers and FFG-7 patrol frigate class ships. The initial CMS development program started with a broad range of measured gas turbine parameters and was successively reduced to a simpler system using only selected parameters useful for the marine application. A land-based test as well as an at-sea test is presented, together with a discussion of the impact such a system would have on DD 963 class engine removals.
