Propulsion Analytics Engine Hyper Cube® obtains DNV attestation for Engine CBM
DNV has issued a letter of professional opinion for the Propulsion Analytics service for condition-based maintenance (CBM), using the PA engine performance evaluation and fault diagnostics product Engine Hyper Cube®.
[Propulsion Analytics partnered with DNV Maritime in a project on CBM, under funding of EEA and Norway Grants, 2020-2022].
“In the context of this project, DNV has performed an evaluation of PA processes and methods to assess specific elements of standards and recommended practices concerning the verification, validation and accreditation of software or services on condition monitoring (CM) and condition-based maintenance (CBM). The outcome of the evaluation process can be summarized in the below points:
- The PA Engine Hyper Cube (EHC) methodology uses an engine process simulation model to create a digital twin of any engine in operation.
- The engine simulation model was shown to be accurate over a wide range of engine operation, and thus can be used for engine performance parameter calculation including torque, power production and energy consumption.
- The EHC methodology and application can be used to create reference for engine health and performance evaluation during operation and thus can be used as an additional tool towards CBM for marine engines.
DNV is of the qualified professional opinion that the CBM service of PA meets specific elements of standards as set forth in DNV Class Programme DNV-CP-0484 and US MIL-STD-3022.”
This independent evaluation, further affirms the effectiveness and accuracy of the Engine Hyper Cube® methodology, as attested by more than 300 engine installations in the field.
