Abstract

Understanding the phenomenon underlying the behavior of rotating machinery by models can foster the development of algorithms for prognostic health monitoring. Model development is based on several assumptions and results in differences between the simulated and measured signals. In every system, there is always a transfer function between the rotating component and the sensor. The transfer function is one of the main possible sources of differences between the simulated and measured signals, making interpretation of physical results or further model development difficult. In this paper, a new paradigm is proposed to mitigate this problem. The new paradigm facilitates a quantitative comparison between models and elucidates the components that need further development or meticulous re-examination. We examine the performance of the paradigm using measured signals and transfer functions, and demonstrate it on a physical model of a gearbox with its corresponding measured signals.
