Impact testing of hydro generators end-winding in different temperature state

Maja Anachkova, Jovana Jovanova, Zlatko Petreski

The fault detection of rotating electrical machines has become very attractive field of research from vibrational aspect, because these machines are susceptible to failure due to thermal, electrical, mechanical or environmental stresses. Therefore, the vibrational analysis of generators as rotating machines will be beneficial for the generator design in the initial stage and also for online monitoring and faults diagnostics during generator operation. This paper presents a novel methodology for

Thermoelastic vibration is the main cause of brake jitter and noise, including significant fluctuations in temperature, thermal stress, structure size and braking moment. In order to improve the reliability of thermoelastic vibration results, a multi-physical field coupling modeling method is proposed in this paper, which can realize the simultaneous calculation of temperature field, stress field and air flow field. Firstly, the theoretical analysis of the whole braking coupling process and feas

Fine-grained fault recognition method for shaft orbit of rotary machine based on convolutional neural network

Bo Wu, Songlin Feng, Guodong Sun, Liang Xu, Chenghan Ai

In the fault diagnosis of the shaft orbit of rotating machinery, there are few prejudgments about the severity of the faults, which is very important for fault repair. Therefore, a fine-grained recognition method is proposed to detect different severity faults by shaft orbit. Since different shaft orbits represent different type and different severity of faults, the convolutional neural network (CNN) is applied for identifying the shaft orbits to recognize the type and severity of the fault.

Near-field acoustic holography for high-frequency weak sound sources under low signal-to-noise ratio

Wenyong Guo, Jianggui Han, Hongyu Zhang

The mechanical noise in the cabin of the ship is so large that the leakage of high-pressure fluid is not easily noticed. In view of this situation, a near-field acoustic holography for high-frequency weak sound source under low signal-to-noise ratio is proposed. The method uses the empirical mode decomposition method to add weights to the time-domain sampling signals of each array element, and then uses the plane equivalent source near-field acoustic holography combined with compressive sensing

Macroscopic and microscopic simulation of silo granular flow based on improved multi-element model

Yong Feng, Ziran Yuan

In the PFC simulation of silo granular discharge, spherical particles were used in the traditional model, which could not accurately reflect macroscopic and mesoscopic mechanism during discharge of wheat, rice and other particles with non-spherical shapes. This research provides an improved multi-element model consisting of clump elements and ball elements. The model uses clump elements to simulate non-spherical grain particles and ball elements to simulate dust particles. The numerical simulati

Hybrid spectral speed determination method for rotary machines

Gábor Gárdonyi, Krisztián Samu

Accurate rotational speed determination for rotary machines tends to be allocated high priority in technical applications. In some cases, it is not easy to measure shaft speed directly. Vibration diagnostic tools can offer an alternative solution to the problem posed by direct rotational speed measurement. Using calculated spectra and cepstra can help to determine the rotational speed easily and accurately. This paper examines the comparison of the spectrum and cepstrum based methods in terms of

Accurate calculation on circumferential natural frequencies of stator structure in permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) is very important for predicting the vibration and noise of PMSM. The analytical modal formula for the stator structure in PMSM is proposed, starting from the mathematical displacement model of cylindrical shell, then deriving the analytical formula for the stator structure. Firstly, finite element method (FEM) is applied to analyze the circumferential natural frequencies

An intelligent fault diagnosis method of rotating machinery using L1-regularized sparse filtering

Weiwei Qian, Shunming Li, Jinrui Wang, Zenghui An, Xingxing Jiang

Traditional intelligent fault diagnosis methods take advantage of diagnostic expertise but are labor-intensive and time-consuming. Among various unsupervised feature extraction methods, sparse filtering computes fast and has less hyperparameters. However, the standard sparse filtering has poor generalization ability and the extracted features are not so discriminative by only constraining the sparsity of the feature matrix. Therefore, an improved sparse filtering with L1 regularization (L1SF) is

Xiaoxue Gong, Lei Zhang, Lei Wei, Xuezhi Jia, Ming Xuan

As an essential part of optical system, lens hoods consisting of shells and plates are designed mainly to protect optical system from unexpected light. Except for such basic function, the hood proposed in this paper has to load several subassemblies and will be applied in high-resolution and wild field-of-view space camera with strict mass limitation, which makes effective mechanical reinforcement and lightweight of hood quite necessary. To meet such requirements, stiffness improvement methods i

Mitigation of conductor line galloping by a direct cable-connection to non-conductive composite power pylons

Mathias Kliem, Daniel Johansen, Jan Høgsberg

Steel lattice towers with suspended insulator strings are typically used to carry high-voltage overhead transmission lines. The installation of non-conductive power pylons made of glass fibre reinforced plastics enables a direct cable-pylon connection, as the composite structure acts as an unibody insulator. At the same time, wind-induced vibrations, such as the severe cable vibration phenomenon galloping, will consequently be directly transferred to the slender composite mast structure, potenti

A new weak fault diagnosis method based on multi-scale wavelet noise tuning cascaded multi-stable stochastic resonance

Dongying Han, Shujun An, Peiming Shi, Ying Zhang

For detecting the weak fault diagnosis submerged in heavy noise, a new method called multi-scale cascaded multi-stable stochastic resonance (MCMSR) is studied. The method can effectively extract weak fault diagnosis from noise background using multi-scale wavelet noise tuning stochastic resonance (SR). Firstly, input signal with noise is decomposed by multi-scale wavelets transformation, and each scale signal is adjusted by scaling factor, then the decomposed signal is used as the input of casca
