ABSTRACT In this work we suggest an original fault signature based on an improved combination of Hilbert and Park transforms. Starting from this combination we can create two fault signatures: Hilbert modulus current space vector (HMCSV) and Hilbert phase current space vector (HPCSV). These two fault signatures are subsequently analysed using the classical fast Fourier transform (FFT). The effects of mechanical faults on the HMCSV and HPCSV spectrums are described, and the related frequencies are determined. The magnitudes of spectral components, relative to the studied faults (air-gap eccentricity and outer raceway ball bearing defect), are extracted in order to develop the input vector necessary for learning and testing the support vector machine with an aim of classifying automatically the various states of the induction motor.

    ABSTRACT: Condition monitoring and fault diagnosis of rolling element bearings timely and accurately are very important to ensure the reliability of rotating machinery. This paper presents a novel pattern classification approach for bearings diagnostics, which combines the higher order spectra analysis features and support vector machine classifier. The use of non-linear features motivated by the higher order spectra has been reported to be a promising approach to analyze the non-linear and non-Gaussian characteristics of the mechanical vibration signals. The vibration bi-spectrum (third order spectrum) patterns are extracted as the feature vectors presenting different bearing faults. The extracted bi-spectrum features are subjected to principal component analysis for dimensionality reduction. These principal components were fed to support vector machine to distinguish four kinds of bearing faults covering different levels of severity for each fault type, which were measured in the experimental test bench running under different working conditions. In order to find the optimal parameters for the multi-class support vector machine model, a grid-search method in combination with 10-fold cross-validation has been used. Based on the correct classification of bearing patterns in the test set, in each fold the performance measures are computed. The average of these performance measures is computed to report the overall performance of the support vector machine classifier. In addition, in fault detection problems, the performance of a detection algorithm usually depends on the trade-off between robustness and sensitivity. The sensitivity and robustness of the proposed method are explored by running a series of experiments. A receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve made the results more convincing. The results indicated that the proposed method can reliably identify different fault patterns of rolling element bearings based on vibration signals.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a novel pattern classification approach for bearing defects diagnostics, which combine the higher order spectra (HOS) analysis features and support vector machine classifier (SVM). The use of non-linear features motivated by the higher order spectra has been reported to be a promising approach to analyze the non-linear and non-Gaussian characteristics of the bearing mechanical vibration signals. The vibration bi-spectrum patterns are extracted as the feature vectors presenting different faults of the bearings. The extracted bi-spectrum features are subjected to principal component analysis (PCA) for dimensionality reduction. These principal components were fed to support vector machine to distinguish four kinds of bearing conditions namely: normal, inner race fault, outer race fault and ball fault, which were measured in the experimental test bench running under different working conditions. The results indicated that the proposed method can reliably identify different fault patterns of rolling element bearings based on mechanical vibration signals.

    ABSTRACT: A new method has been proposed for online faults diagnosis in induction motors based on smart WSN combined with motor current signature analysis using FFT.•The proposed method is novel as it is important to install low cost sensors and detection mechanisms along with induction machines to achieve short detection time and an automated way of reporting the fault.•The system can distinguish a faulty motor from a healthy motor with a probability of 99% with less than 5% of false alarm.•Simulation results presented show the efficiency of the proposed method to detect faults in induction machine.
