Abstract—A method that uses an improved particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm combined with a backpropagation (BP) neural network is proposed to solve the problem of liquid-propellant rocket engine (LRE) failure detection. In the improved PSO algorithm, the global extremum is randomly perturbed by adding disturbance factor using the degree of particle aggregation around the global optimal value, and the individual extremum is randomly perturbed by adding disturbance factor using the number of particle extreme stagnation steps, disturbance factors are randomly added to individual extremum to diturb the particle’s current search path, increasing the probability of particles jumping out of local extremum, avoiding the occurrence of local extremum, premature convergence or stagnation. In this paper, the improved algorithm is applied to the fault detection of a typical liquid rocket engine in steady state process. The simulation results show that, under the same conditions, the convergence speed of this PSO-BP method is obviously higher than that of BP neural network, and it does not fall into the local extreme value. The accuracy of fault detection is also improved significantly.

Index Terms—Liquid-propellant rocket engine, fault detection, particle swarm optimization (PSO), randomly perturbed.
