Application of Neural Networks to Detect Eccentricity of Induction Motors

   | Dec 29, 2017


The possibility of using neural networks to detect eccentricity of induction motors has been presented. A field-circuit model, which was used to generate a diagnostic pattern has been discussed. The formulas describing characteristic fault frequencies for static, dynamic and mixed eccentricity, occurring in the stator current spectrum, have been presented. Teaching and testing data for neural networks based on a preliminary analysis of diagnostic signals (phase currents) have been prepared. Two types of neural networks were discussed: general regression neural network (GRNN) and multilayer perceptron (MLP) neural network. This paper presents the results obtained for each type of the neural network. Developed neural detectors are characterized by high detection effectiveness of induction motor eccentricity.
