Paper Abstract

This paper describes and reports the findings of a study performed by the Miller Brewing Company. The researchers assembled a test bed consisting of a motor and generator linked by seven different interchangeable flexible couplings. They then misaligned the motor and generator and used different predictive technologies to monitor any coupling changes.
