This paper presents a methodology for predictive and prescriptive analytics of a gas turbine. The methodology is based on a combination of physics-based and data-driven modeling using machine learning techniques. Combining these approaches results in a set of reliable, fast, and continuously updating models for prescriptive analytics. The methodology is demonstrated with a case study of a jet-engine power plant preventive maintenance and diagnosis of its flame tube. The developed approach allows not just to analyze and predict some problems in the combustion chamber, but also to identify a particular flame tube to be repaired or replaced and plan maintenance actions in advance.
