Engine Condition Trend Monitoring

Engine Condition Trend MonitoringECM is the continuous monitoring of key engine parameter to detect impending failures and assess engine performance. ECM uses standard engine and aircraft instrumentation for monitoring.

During normal operation all engines will experience rubbing, thermal stress, mechanical stress, dirt accumulation, foreign object ingestion and other events which will eventually result in a measurable decrease in efficiency. By continuously monitoring the evolution of key parameters that can translate engine condition, deterioration in engine performance can be detected as well as early signs of engine faults and thus appropriate measures can be undertaken.

This course provides an introduction to the process and techniques related to Engine Condition Trend Monitoring.
