Mode Identification Based on Fuzzy Clustering and Grey System Theory and its Applichation
The helath condition of rotor has been greatly concerned in rotating machinery. But for the lack of information, it is very difficult to judge the actual conditon. Based on the fuzzy and grey characteristics between faults and symptoms, a new method integrated with fuzzy clustering and grey relation analysis was put forward to identify the condition of rotor system. Firstly, eight features, such as average value, peak-peak value, variance value, virtual value and etc., were extracted from the vibration signal of rotor system. Then, fuzzy C-means algorithm was used to cluster forty samples into 4 clusters, meanwhile, the clustering center was acquired and regarded as standard pattern matrix. Finally, the grey relation degree was calculated between pattern to be inspected and the standard pattern matrix. Using this method, the unbalanced conditions of rotor system was precisely identified, which shows that the integrated method is valid and practicable.
