Fault Diagnosis of Railway Axlebox Bearing Based on Wavelet Packet and Neural Network
A real time and effective axlebox bearing fault diagnostic method is significant in the condition-based maintenance. In the axlebox bearing fault diagnostic system, fault features extraction and fault patterns classification are two important aspects to identify whether a axlebox bearing is failure or not. This paper presents a method of axlebox bearing fault diagnosis based on wavelet packet decomposition and BP neural network. First decompose the vibration signal into a finite number of coefficients by wavelet packet decomposition. Then calculate energy moment of each coefficient and take the energy moment as an eigenvector to effectively express the failure feature. Finally BP neural network is used for fault classification. The experimental results show that combining wavelet packet decomposition with BP neural network could identify the axlebox bearing fault effectively. The average diagnosis accuracy rate is 96.67%.
