The relative health of a gas turbine engine is analyzed and the particular faults are automatically determined by sensing monitored parameters of the gas path of gas turbine engine and electronically computing them into thermodynamically independent variables and comparing the rate of change of this value with a base line value used as a reference datum. A special purpose computer is programmed to include a general influence coefficient matrix containing the independent variables selected to determine the specific fault and serves to thermodynamically simulate the engine's operations.
