As part of the project KI-Trans­fer Plus, IfTA re­searched the use of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence for mon­i­tor­ing gas tur­bines.

On March 31, 2022, a press day was held in Sch­wan­dorf, (Bavaria, Ger­many) to mark the suc­cess­ful con­clu­sion of the AI Trans­fer Plus project. IfTA was one of the first of six com­pa­nies to par­tic­i­pate in the re­search project on ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence. The Bavar­i­an Min­is­ter of State for Dig­i­tal Af­fairs, Ms. Ju­dith Ger­lach, in­formed her­self about the pos­i­tive project progress with our Dr. Her­mann.

Ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence for mon­i­tor­ing gas tur­bines

IfTA in­ves­ti­gat­ed the use of AI for pre­dic­tive main­te­nance of gas tur­bines. The Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence IfTA de­vel­oped as part of the project is used to mon­i­tor dan­ger­ous com­bus­tion dy­nam­ics that can dis­turb the op­er­a­tion of gas tur­bines or even cause se­vere dam­age. By in­clud­ing the gas tur­bines' op­er­at­ing in­for­ma­tion and a com­pre­hen­sive eval­u­a­tion of the sen­sor data, much more pre­cise state­ments can be made about the ma­chine's con­di­tion. Com­pared to pre­vi­ous sys­tems, our new so­lu­tion al­lows both more com­pre­hen­sive and more re­li­able mon­i­tor­ing as well as ear­li­er de­tec­tion of harm­ful vi­bra­tions. This means that early ac­tion can pre­vent an emer­gen­cy shut­down and the as­so­ci­at­ed high costs.

 

the Pro­ject KI-Trans­fer Plus

KI-Trans­fer Plus is a unique pilot pro­gram in Ger­many that has been run­ning since 2021 as part of a re­search study on be­half of the Bavar­i­an State Min­istry for Dig­i­tal Af­fairs. Within the scope of this project local re­gion­al AI cen­ters sup­port com­pa­nies in the in­tro­duc­tion of Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence - from vi­sion de­vel­op­ment to in­te­gra­tion into a prod­uct.
