Rolling Bearing Diagnosis Based on LMD and Neural Network

Baoshan Huang, Baoshan Huang, Wei, Wei Xu, and Xinfeng Zou

Inner ring pitting, the outer indentation and rolling element wear are typical faults of rolling bearing. In order to diagnose these faults rapidly and accurately, the paper proposes a novel diagnosis method of rolling bearing based on the energy characteristics of PF component and neural network by the vibration signal of local mean decomposition(Local mean decomposition, LMD). The vibration signal is decomposed into several PF components by the local mean decomposition, the calculated energy characteristics of the PF component are inputted to the neural network to identify the type of rolling bearing faults. At the same time, the genetic algorithm is introduced to optimize the structure parameters of neural network, which improves diagnostic rate and accuracy of faults. The results show that this method has a higher diagnosis and recognition rate for the typical faults of rolling bearing.
