Title: System and method for using engine efficiency in predictive maintenance of a power generator

Abstract

Methods, systems and apparatuses for early fault detection of a power generator are provided. An alternator output power parameter is received and a fuel flow input measurement is received. An estimated engine efficiency value is determined in response to the alternator output power parameter and the fuel flow input measurement. The estimated engine efficiency value may be transmitted to a monitoring device.
