Machinery Monitoring Using Vibration Signal Analysis
Temperature, vibration, noise, current, voltage, acoustic emission, etc., all of the measurements are used for
machine condition monitoring. Measuring vibration signals is one of the non-destructive testing (NDT) methods that is widely
used to detect machine faults. There are many studies to predict mechanical wear, fault and failure in this area for several
decades. Signal processing techniques are used to obtain vital characteristic information from the vibration signals. This paper
attempts to summarize the results of an evaluation of vibration analysis techniques as a method for diagnosis of gear faults.
The most effective vibration techniques are discussed and experimentally compared, concerning an industrial gearbox. Their
advantages and disadvantages have been shown.
