With the development of modern multi-sensor based data acquisition technology often used with advanced signal processing techniques, more and more features are being extracted for the purposes of fault diagnostics and prognostics of machinery integrity. Applying multiple features can enhance the condition monitoring capability and improve the fault diagnosis accuracy. However, an excessive number of features also increases the complexity of the data analysis task and often increases the time associated with the analysis process. A method of bringing some efficiency into this process is to choose the most sensitive feature subset instead. Fuzzy measures are helpful in this regard and have the ability to represent the importance and interactions among different criteria. Based on fuzzy measure theory, a feature selection approach for machinery fault diagnosis is presented in this paper. A heuristic least mean square algorithm is adopted to identify the fuzzy measures using training data set. Shapley values with respect to the fuzzy measures are applied as importance indexes to help choose the most sensitive features from a set of features. Interaction indexes with respect to the fuzzy measures are then employed to remove the redundant features. Vibration signals from a rolling element bearing test rig are used to validate the method. The results show that the proposed feature selection approach based on fuzzy measures is effective for fault diagnosis.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
