We proposed and developed a novel algorithm, named multiscale cross entropy (MSCE), to assess the dynamical characteristics of coupling behavior between two sequences on multiple scales, and apply it into the analysis of ¿coupling behavior¿ between two variables in physical and physiological systems, such as Henon-Henon map, Ro¿ssler-Lorenz differential equations and autonomic nervous system. The MSCE analysis, explicitly addressing multiscale features of coupling system, not only provides a nonlinear index of asynchrony at multiple temporal scales, but a measure of fractal dynamical characteristics relative to coupling behavior.

    ABSTRACT: The flow of an oil–water two-phase fluid in an inclined pipe exhibits fundamentally different behaviors to that of a vertical two-phase flow, especially the flow commonly presents complex countercurrent flow structure due to the influence of gravity. The understanding of inclined oil–water flow is of important significance for flow measurement and production optimization. We using multi-scale cross entropy (MSCE) analysis investigate the nonlinear dynamics of inclined water-dominated oil–water two-phase flow patterns which are Dispersion oil-in-water-Pseudoslugs (D O/W PS), Dispersion oil-in-water-Countercurrent (D O/W CT) and Transitional Flow (TF). We find that the rate of low-scale cross entropy can effectively identify flow patterns, and the high-scale cross entropy can represent their long-range dynamics. The research results show that the multi-scale cross entropy analysis can be a helpful tool for revealing nonlinear dynamics of inclined oil–water two-phase flow in terms of microscopic and macroscopic views.

    ABSTRACT: Increasing demand on energy has accelerated research on improving the reliability of wind turbines. As a critical component in wind turbine drivetrains, the majority of gearbox failures have shown to initiate from bearing failures. The low signal-to-noise ratio and transient nature of bearing signals pose significant difficulty for bearing defect diagnosis at the incipient stage. For improved bearing diagnosis, this paper presents a new method that integrates ensemble empirical mode decomposition (EEMD) with independent component analysis (ICA) to effectively separate bearing and gear meshing signals, without requiring a priori information on rotating speeds or bandwidth. The method first decomposes sensor measurement into a series of intrinsic mode functions (IMFs) as pseudo multi-channel signals, by means of EEMD, to satisfy the requirement by ICA for redundant information. ICA is performed on the IMFs to separate defective bearing components from gear meshing signal. Enveloping spectrum analysis is then performed to identify bearing structural defects. Both numerical and experimental studies have demonstrated the merit of the developed new method in improving gearbox diagnosis.
