Adjustable-speed drives perform many vital control functions in the industry, serving in such diverse applications as rolling mills, variable-speed compressors, fans, and pumps. When an adjustable-speed drive fails due to a bearing failure, it is usually catastrophic. Bearing defects introduce vibration anomalies that alter the current characterist...

The fast Fourier transform (FFT) is the most widely used power system harmonic analysis tool in real-time power metering due to its computational efficiency. Recently, an alternate method, i.e., wavelet packet decomposition (WPD), has been applied to power system signals to meter the voltage and current harmonics. Although the new method provides b...

Bearing faults are by far the biggest single source of motor failures.

The induction motor current is nonstationary by nature, and time-scale analysis techniques such as wavelet packet decomposition (WPD) are more suitable for the analysis of the stator current for broken rotor bar detection. But, WPD is very costly in terms of the computational effort when half-band FIR filter banks are used in analysis. The implemen...

Early detection of the motor faults is essential and Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) are widely used for this purpose. The typical systems usually encapsulate two distinct blocks: feature extraction and classification. Such fixed and hand-crafted features may be a sub-optimal choice and require a significant computational cost that will prevent t...
