Abstract

This article uses the cluster dependent weighted fuzzy C-means based radial basis function neural network for comparing the different dimensionality reduction techniques for the fault diagnosis in the rolling element bearing. The vibration signals from normal bearing, bearing with defect on the inner race, and bearing with defect on the outer race were acquired under one radial load and two shaft speeds. These signals were subjected to the wavelet transform based denoising from which several time and frequency domain features were extracted. Dimensionality reduction techniques, namely, principal component analysis, Fisher’s criterion, and separation index, have been used to select the sensitive features. The selected features were used to train and test the radial basis function neural network, where the centers of the radial basis function units have been optimized by the cluster dependent weighted fuzzy C-means and the widths of the radial basis function units have been fixed by trial and error. Finally, a comparison of the dimensionality reduction techniques based on the radial basis function neural network performance is presented
