Rolling-element bearings are widely used in various mechanical and electrical facilities; accordingly, a reliable real-time bearing condition-monitoring system is very useful in industries to detect bearing defects at both incipient and advanced levels to prevent machinery performance degradation and malfunctions. The objective of this paper is to develop an enhanced diagnostic (ED) scheme for bearing fault diagnostics. This scheme consists of modules of classification and prediction. A…
