Generalized Roughness Bearing Faults Diagnosis Based on Induction Motor Stator Current
MetadataShow full item record
Despite their reliability, induction motors tend to fail. Around 41% of faults in motors are bearing related and that is the most common fault in motor field. Due to the lack of research on generalized roughness bearing fault diagnostics by use of a stator current spectrum, the presented study analyses both single-point and generalized roughness bearing faults and their classification possibilities. In this paper, a new method for generalized roughness ball bearing fault identification by use of a stator current signal analysis is presented. The algorithm relies on Discrete Wavelet Transform and Welch's spectral density analysis. The composition of both methods is used for building a feature vector for the classifier. In order to achieve classification, support vector machine classifier with linear kernel function has been applied. The validation experiment and results are presented.
