Development of a Method for Selection of Effective Singular Values in Bearing Fault Signal De-Noising
AbstractSingular value decomposition (SVD) is a widely used and powerful tool for signal extraction under noise. Noise attenuation relies on the selection of the effective singular value because these values are significant features of the useful signal. Traditional methods of selecting effective singular values (or selecting the useful components to rebuild the faulty signal) consist of seeking the maximum peak of the differential spectrum of singular values. However, owing to the small number of selected effective singular values, these methods lead to excessive de-noised effects. In order to get a more appropriate number of effective singular values, which preserves the components of the original signal as much as possible, this paper used a difference curvature spectrum of incremental singular entropy to determine the number of effective singular values. Then the position was found where the difference of two peaks in the spectrum declines in an infinitely large degree for the first time, and this position was regarded as the boundary of singular values between noise and a useful signal. The experimental results showed that the modified methods could accurately extract the non-stationary bearing faulty signal under real background noise. View Full-Text
