Multi-Fault Diagnosis of Gearbox Based on Improved Multipoint Optimal Minimum Entropy Deconvolution
AbstractUnder complicated conditions, the extraction of a multi-fault in gearboxes is difficult to achieve. Due to improper selection of methods, leakage diagnosis or misdiagnosis will usually occur. Ensemble Empirical Mode Decomposition (EEMD) often causes energy leakage due to improper selection of white noise during signal decomposition. Considering that only a single fault cycle can be extracted when MOMED (Multipoint Optimal Minimum Entropy Deconvolution) is used, it is necessary to perform the sub-band processing of the compound fault signal. This paper presents an adaptive gearbox multi-fault-feature extraction method based on Improved MOMED (IMOMED). Firstly, EEMD decomposes the signal adaptively and selects the intrinsic mode functions with strong correlation with the original signal to perform FFT (Fast Fourier transform); considering the mode-mixing phenomenon of EEMD, reconstruct the intrinsic mode functions with the same timescale, and obtain several intrinsic mode functions of the same scale to improve the entropy of fault features. There is a lot of white noise in the original signal, and EEMD can improve the signal-to-noise ratio of the original signal. Finally, through the setting of different noise-reduction intervals to extract fault features through MOMED. The proposed method is compared with EEMD and VMD (Variational Mode Decomposition) to verify its feasibility. View Full-Text
