Abstract: The fault signals of equipments are nonlinear and non-stationary and these characteristics are more significant with the fault level increasing. In response to this feature of condition signals, the means of phase space reconstruction is put forward to display signals’ dynamics characteristic of different failure modes. And each mode’s Gaussian mixture model of reconstructed phase space is built, and then the equipments’ failures are classified by Bayes classifier. An actual measurement of gearbox vibration signal is used for validation. The experiments results show that the gear’s fault modes can be identified exactly when the mixture model number is appropriate and the noise disturbance can be overcome by proposed algorithm. Compared with BP and Elman neural network classifiers, the proposed method is proved higher reorganization rate.
