This paper provides an overview of the controls and diagnostics technologies, that are seen as critical for more intelligent gas turbine engines (GTE), with an emphasis on the sensor and actuator technologies that need to be developed for the controls and diagnostics implementation. The objective of the paper is to help the “Customers” of advanced technologies, defense acquisition and aerospace research agencies, understand the state-of-the-art of intelligent GTE technologies, and help the “Researchers” and “Technology Developers” for GTE sensors and actuators identify what technologies need to be developed to enable the “Intelligent GTE” concepts and focus their research efforts on closing the technology gap. To keep the effort manageable, the focus of the paper is on “On-Board Intelligence” to enable safe and efficient operation of the engine over its life time, with an emphasis on gas path performance.
