Abstract

It is a challenging issue to detect bearing fault under nonstationary conditions and gear noise interferences. Meanwhile, the application of the traditional methods is limited by their deficiencies in the aspect of computational accuracy and efficiency, or dependence on the tachometer. Hence, a new fault diagnosis strategy is proposed to remove gear interferences and spectrum smearing phenomenon without the tachometer and angular resampling technique. In this method, the instantaneous dominant meshing multiple (IDMM) is firstly extracted from the time-frequency representation (TFR) of the raw signal, which can be used to calculate the phase functions (PF) and the frequency points (FP). Next, the resonance frequency band excited by the faulty bearing is obtained by the band-pass filter. Furthermore, based on the PFs, the generalized demodulation transform (GDT) is applied to the envelope of the filtered signal. Finally, the target bearing is diagnosed by matching the peaks in the spectra of demodulated signals with the theoretical FPs. The analysis results of simulated and experimental signal demonstrate that the proposed method is an effective and reliable tool for bearing fault diagnosis without the tachometer and the angular resampling.
