Abstract

Vibration monitoring is applicable to all rotating machines for defect detection and diagnosis. Measurement and analysis of vibration have also been applied to rotating electrical machines with the objective of fault detection and predictive maintenance. The sources of vibration generation in electrical rotating machines, both electrical and mechanical, have been identified in this chapter. The vibratory characteristics associated with these defects have also been discussed in detail. Analyses of vibratory signatures in time domain, frequency domain, and time frequency domain have been dealt with, and different features and indicators associated with each domain have been described. The details of vibration measurement schemes such as transducers, different signal conditioning elements, as well as characteristics of recording and display devices and their applicability to electrical machines have also been included in the chapter.

Vibration Generation In Electrical Machines

There are several sources of vibration generation in rotating electrical machines. These sources may be broadly categorized into two types: mechanical and electrical. As stated earlier, these sources are inter-related and complementary. It is therefore very important to understand the reasons and causes for vibration generation before dealing with the monitoring techniques.
