Water is one of the most significant destructive contaminations to lubricants which in turn lead to more power consumption and early damage to rotating machines. This study explores the effect of water contents in gearbox lube oil on the responses of electrical supply parameters. A two stage gearbox based mechanical transmission system driven by a(More)
To develop accurate diagnostic techniques, this study examines gear dynamic responses based on a model including the frictional effect of tooth mesh process. An 8-DOF (degree-of-freedom) model is developed to include the effect of not only gear dynamics but also supporting bearings, a driving motor and a loading system. Moreover, it takes into account the(More)

Condition monitoring (CM) of gearbox is a crucial activity due to its importance in power transmission for many industrial applications. Monitoring temperature is an effective mean to collect useful information about the healthy conditions of the gearbox. This study investigates the use of a novel wireless temperature node to monitor and diagnose different(More)

To develop accurate diagnostic techniques, this study examines the dynamic responses of spur gear transmission system with including frictional effects on a tooth mesh process. An 8-degreeof-freedom model is developed to include the effects of supporting bearings, a driving motor and a loading system. Moreover, it takes into account not only the(More)
Motor current signature analysis (MCSA) is regarded as an effective technique for motor and its downstream equipment fault diagnostics. However, limited work has been carried out for motors based on a sensorless variable speed drive (VSD). This study focuses on investigation of mechanical fault detection and diagnosis using electrical signatures from a VSD(More)
