multi-view features feature fusion fault diagnosis rolling bearing machine learning
To improve the accuracy and robustness of rolling bearing fault diagnosis under complex conditions, a novel method based on multi-view feature fusion is proposed. Firstly, multi-view features from perspectives of the time domain, frequency domain and time-frequency domain are extracted through the Fourier transform, Hilbert transform and empirical mode decomposition(EMD).Then, the random forest model(RF)is applied to select features which are highly correlated with the bearing operating state. Subsequently, the selected features are fused via the autoencoder(AE)to further reduce the redundancy. Finally, the effectiveness of the fused features is evaluated by the support vector machine(SVM). The experimental results indicate that the proposed method based on the multi-view feature fusion can effectively reflect the difference in the state of the rolling bearing, and improve the accuracy of fault diagnosis.
