In order to start functioning of such network, it should be trained first using the pre-defined training sets. These data should fully characterize work of the object in a wide range of operating modes and at various technical states of the diagnosticated assemblies. In addition, it is necessary to have a similar data set to monitor quality of the neural network learning.</p><p>To train the network to recognize faults of one type, a set of 20‒200 or more training examples is required. Obtaining such information in operation or in full-scale tests is a rather long or costly process.</p><p>A method for acquisition of training and control data sets was proposed. The sets are intended to train static neural networks recognizing single and multiple faults of the elements of air-gas channels of gas turbine engines and gas pumping units. The method enables obtaining sets of working process parameters describing operation of objects at various technical states of an air-gas channel, effect of measurement errors and object functioning in a wide range of modes and external conditions. Composition of the pumped gas is additionally taken into account for gas pumping units.</p><p>To obtain the required parameters, a mathematical model of the working process of the object of the second level of complexity was used.</p><p>The sets characterize work of operable objects and objects with significant malfunctions in spools of compressors and turbines and in a combustion chamber and for the case of a gas pumping unit, in its supercharger.</p>Two variants of formation of sets were considered: using the measured parameters of the working process; deviations of the measured parameters from their reference values and the parameters used as regime parameters in the mathematical model of the working process. For the second variant, check of expediency of including the regime parameters in the sets was made. It has been shown that regime parameters can be excluded from data sets in some cases}, number={9 (96)}, journal={Eastern-European Journal of Enterprise Technologies}, author={Kulyk, Mykola and Abdullayev, Parviz and Yakushenko, Oleksandr and Popov, Oleksandr and Mirzoyev, Azer and Chumak, Oleg and Okhmakevych, Valerii}, year={2018}, month={Nov.}, pages={55–63} }
