Abstract: This paper presents a texture analysis based feature extraction method using a Gabor filter and singular value decomposition (SVD) for reliable fault diagnosis of an induction motor. This method first converts one-dimensional (1D) vibration signal to a two-dimensional (2D) grey-level texture image for each fault signal. Then, the 2D Gabor filter with optimal frequency and orientation values is used to extract a filtered image with distinctive texture information, and SVD is utilised to decompose the Gabor filtered image and select finer singular values of SVD as discriminative features for multi-fault diagnosis. Finally, one-against-all multiclass support vector machines (OAA-MCSVMs) are used as classifiers. In this study, multiple induction motor faults with different noisy conditions are used to validate the proposed fault diagnosis methodology. The experimental results indicate that the proposed method achieves an average classification accuracy of 99.86% and outperforms conventional fault diagnosis algorithms in the fault classification accuracy.

Keywords: induction motor; texture analysis; discriminative features; Gabor filter; singular valued decomposition; SVD.
