The development of intelligent ships has an urgent demand for intelligent fault diagnosis technology. The working conditions and fault modes of high-power marine diesel engines gradually tend to be diversified and complicated, and the problems of reliability and safety are becoming more and more prominent. There are a lot of working condition data that lack fault labels, and the fault modes are asymmetric among different working conditions, so it is urgent to study effective fault diagnosis methods. Taking a marine diesel engine as the case validation object, we set up cross-condition and partial set fault diagnosis scenarios, proposed transferring knowledge from the source condition to the target condition for the problem of the lack of fault labels in the target condition, and designed a multi-scale and multi-view domain adversarial network (MMDAN) method for experimental validation using 6S50MC-C7 marine diesel engine system operation data. According to the experimental results, the average diagnostic accuracy of this method reached 96.58%, with a short processing time. Furthermore, it exhibits superior diagnostic performance compared to other transfer learning models in the cross-condition partial set transfer task. Additionally, the method proposed in this paper also offers a new approach and reference for the intelligent diagnosis of other equipment in ships.
