Artificial intelligence will help to improve manufacture of blades for gas turbine engines

Scientists of Perm state national research university (PSU) and specialists of JSC UEC-Perm Engines are planning to realize a project on the application of artificial intelligence in the manufacture of parts and assembly units of gas turbine engines. Rector of Perm state national research university Igor Makarikhin and Managing Director of JSC UEC-Perm Engines Sergey Popov have come to an agreement about such research, development and production cooperation.

            There is an initiative group from university scientists and specialists of the enterprise at the moment.


Sergey Popov, Managing Director of JSC «UEC-Perm engines»: 


            - We are very interested in cooperation, because manufacture of turbine blades is a key competence of the plant, and we make maximum efforts to increase the yield of blades, increase its resource and reliability enhancement. Ahead is a big work on commissioning of new aircraft engine PD-14, engine development of big thrust PD-35… We must keep up with the world’s leading engine manufacturers.  


     Leonid Yasnitskiy, Professor of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Informatics of PSU, told that the use of artificial intelligent will allow keeping resources on the application of turbine blades. By using of special neural network it can be possible to define the “pain points” on the application of blades and decrease of spoilage quantity.           


- We have already gained the experience, both positive and negative,- says Leonid Nahimovich, - it means that we know, what risks can occur. The first task now is to collect static data, measure parameters which we have a lot. Then these data are loaded into the computer, the neyron network is connected, which learns, extracts patterns and learns to manage the process.
