Aircraft engine early failure detection
The Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) engine is an essential component of modern aircraft.?We made it possible for EPCOR to use a deep learning model to do predictive maintenance on this APU.
The APU is not only a great power source to generate onboard electricity and heat, but it is also the lifeline of the aircraft when the main engines stop working. Therefore airlines rely fully on a perfect working APU. In the case of the APU malfunctions, it has to be repaired immediately. This harms the continuity of the operation.
As one of the leading organizations in aircraft component repair, EPCOR, is fully aware of the impact of a malfunctioning APU. They, therefore, offer to their clients some years a predictive maintenance tool that enables airlines to monitor the status of their fleet.
We helped EPCOR building a deep learning model capable of predicting APU malfunctions of the Boeing 737. For more information watch this video.
