SPN 515 - Eng's Desired Operating Speed

C9s - Diagnostic code query

I am periodically receiving the following Diagnostic Code on shutdown.

SPN 515

FMI 8.

 

Engines are 503HP c9s.  CSN00625 and CSN00630

 

Sometimes it is the Port engine, sometimes the Starboard.

 

I can't 100% replicate it but I *think* it shows up when I have had the RPM sync'd at some stage during the trip, and perhaps also when I have used low speed idle at some stage.

 

Any thoughts?  I can't find anything definitive online.

 

Thanks in advance.

Regards
