Motor Gear Fault Diagnosis by Current, Noise and Vibration on AC Machine Considering Environment
Lots of motors have been being used in industry.
Therefore many researchers have studied about the failure diagnosis of
motors. In this paper, the effect of measuring environment for
diagnosis of gear fault connected to a motor shaft is studied. The fault
diagnosis is executed through the comparison of normal gear and
abnormal gear. The measured FFT data are compared with the normal
data and analyzed for q-axis current, noise and vibration. For bad and
good environment, the diagnosis results are compared. From these, it
is shown that the bad measuring environment may not be able to detect
exactly the motor gear fault. Therefore it is emphasized that the
measuring environment should be carefully prepared.
