Abstract

The fault diagnosis provides an effective way to ensure the safe and optimal operation of engine lubrication system. The efficiency of the diagnostic approach depends critically on the location of sensors monitoring the system parameters. This paper presents an investigation into the sensor placement of an inline, 6-cylinder marine engine lubrication system in terms of condition monitoring. The existing sensor network is studied firstly to evaluate the capabilities of condition monitoring and isolatability. The improvement is given accordingly for the desired diagnosability and isolatability. This paper gives a transferable approach on the two generally concerned questions of condition monitoring: (i) evaluating the diagnosability and isolatability of a system with existing sensor network; and (ii) finding out a quantity-optimum set of sensors for a desired diagnosability and isolatability of a system.
