Abstract: This paper presents a new approach to intelligent fault diagnosis of the machinery based on granular computing. The tolerance granularity space mode is constructed by means of the inner-class distance defined in the attributes space. Different features of the vibration signals, including time-domain statistical features and frequency domain statistical features, are extracted and selected using distance evaluation technique as the attributes to construct the granular structure. Finally, the proposed approach is applied to fault diagnosis of rolling element bearings, and testing results show that the proposed approach can reliably recognise different faulty categories and severities.

 

Keywords: granular computing; tolerance relations; granularity structure; fault diagnosis; intelligent diagnosis; vibration signals; rolling element bearings.
