Engine Fault 3


Observe Animation Below. It moves fast but you can view as many cycles as you like. Refer to Baseline as often as you like.  Or make specification sheet from Baseline animation.

1. Boiler Valve 1 failed

2. Boiler Valve 2 failed

3. Engine Efficiency declined

4. Effective Area of black body radiator decreased ( Could happen if tube were blocked or valve failed.)

5. Qh Temperature Gage or Sensor faulty.

6. Qc Temperature Gage or Sensor faulty.
