Rolling-element bearings are widely used in various mechanical and electrical systems. A reliable online bearing fault-diagnostic technique is critically needed to prevent the system's performance degradation and malfunction. In this paper, an extended wavelet spectrum analysis technique is proposed for a more positive assessment of bearing health conditions. Two strategies have been suggested for different wavelet function implementation. Two statistical indexes are proposed to quantify the… Expand
