Vibration-based orbit analysis has been employed as a powerful tool in diagnosing the operating state for rotating machinery in power plants. However, due to the difficulties of extracting mathematical features for data-driven approaches in the orbit analysis, it heavily depends on the expert knowledge or experience. In this paper, the deep learning algorithm in machine learning is used to develop autonomous orbit pattern recognition. In details, the convolutional neural network is implemented to build up weights between convolution kernels and pixels, and to construct the entire structure of the neural networks. Finally, the trained network enables us to classify the shapes of the orbit via orbit shape images and its result can estimate fault modes of the rotating machinery. The proposed framework is demonstrated with a rotating testbed.
