Abstract

This paper presents a condition monitoring methodology that uses a novel condition indicator (CI) algorithm, allowing for a confident assessment of system health and an advanced warning of failures. The CI is evaluated in the application of a specialized gear rig utilized for the high-cycle fatigue testing of hypoid gears. The CI is shown in this case study to ensure higher confidence in the prediction of failures than other algorithms, with variations in the results. In the comparison, consideration is given to the signal-to-noise ratio, the ability to differentiate between damages and/or damaged components and the sensitivity of the CI to the failure.
