Paper Abstract

This paper presents an adaptive filtering technique for the health diagnosis of mechanical systems, based on the generalized harmonic wavelet transformation. Through selection of two wavelet level parameters, a series of sub-frequency band wavelet coefficients corresponding to equi-bandwidth vibration signals measured from a machine were constructed. The energy and entropy associated with each sub-frequency band were then calculated, and the band with the maximum energy-to-entropy ratio was chosen to form a band-limited filter for the vibration signals. Experimental studies using rolling bearings that contain structural defects have confirmed that, the developed new technique enables high signal-to-noise ratio for effective machine failure detection and health diagnosis.
