The reference frame theory and its applications to fault diagnosis of electric machinery as a powerful tool to find the magnitude and phase quantities of fault signatures are explored in this paper. The core idea is to convert the associated fault signature to a dc quantity, followed by calculating the signal average value in the new reference frame to filter out the rest of the signal harmonics, i. e. its ac components. Broken rotor bar and rotor eccentricity faults are experimentally tested both offline using the data acquisition system, and online employing the TMS320F2812 DSP to prove the efficacy of the proposed tool. The proposed method has been theoretically and experimentally proven to detect the fault harmonics and determine the existence and the severity of machine faults. The advantages of this method include the following: (1) no need to employ external hardware or a PC running a high level program; (2) provides instantaneous fault monitoring using a DSP controller in real time; (3) embedded into the motor drive; thus, readily available drive sensors and the core processor are used without employing additional hardware; (4) no need to store machine currents data, and thus no need for large memory size; (5) very short convergence time capability; (6) immune to non-idealities like sensor dc offsets, imbalance, etc.

Line Current Analysis for Bearing fault Detection In Induction Motors Using Hilbert Transform Phase
Oumaamar, M. E. K.; Razik, H.; Rezzoug, A.; Khezzar, A. (2011-09-10)
The present paper focuses by means of an experimental study, on the effect of a bearing fault on the stator current signatures in induction motors. The variation in the amplitude of the characteristic components is not so significant. For that and in order to depict the presence of the fault harmonic signatures, the authors used the phase analysis of Hilbert transform applied on the spectrum modulus of the line current.
PWM inverter harmonics contributions to the inverter-fed induction machine bearing fault diagnosis
Akin, Bilal; Toliyat, Hamid A.; Orguner, Umut; Rayner, Mark (2007-03-01)
The effects of inverter harmonics on motor current fault signatures are studied in detail in this paper. According to theory and experimentation, the fault signatures caused by the inverter harmonics are similar and comparable to those generated by the fundamental harmonic of the line current. Unlike the utility-driven motor, monitoring the current of the inverter-fed motor is considerably noisy, which can mask the fault signatures and render a wrong fault warning. Therefore, the proposed additional fault d...
High Performance Harmonic Isolation By Means of The Single-phase Series Active Filter Employing The Waveform Reconstruction Method
Senturk, Osman S.; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2009-09-24)
This paper proposes the Waveform Reconstruction Method (WRM), which is utilized in the single-phase Series Active Filter's (SAF's) control algorithm, in order to extract the load harmonic voltage component of voltage harmonic type single-phase diode rectifier loads. Employing WRM and the line current sampling delay reduction method (SDRM), a single-phase SAF compensated system provides higher harmonic isolation performance and higher stability margins compared to the system using conventional synchronous re...

This paper presents an extended review and recent advances in modeling and diagnosis of interturn short circuit (ITSC) faults in permanent magnet synchronous machines, supported with in-depth fault analysis. In the analysis part, the influence of the fault intensity on the machine's parameters and performance is analyzed at various operating conditions through finite-element analysis, drive system models, and test bench measurements. The presented findings shed light on the fault signatures and factors that...
Simple real-time condition monitoring tools for low-cost motor drives
AKIN, Bilal; TOLIYAT, Hamid A.; Orguner, Umut; RAYNER, Mark (2007-10-11)
In this paper, two simple digital signal processor (DSP)-based motor fault signature detection techniques are presented. First, the reference frame theory and its applications to fault diagnosis of electric machinery are introduced. Second, phase sensitive detection (PSD) of motor fault signatures is presented. Both techniques provide very simple and robust way to find the magnitude and phase of the specified fault signatures in the line current. Particularly, PSD has a powerful line current noise suppressi...
