A multivariate statistical approach to the implementation of a health monitoring system of mechanical power drives



Alberto Bellazzi Giovanni Jacazio Bruno Maino Gueorgui Mihaylov Franco Pellerey


The implementation in service of accelerometric health monitoring systems of mechanical power drives has shown that a considerable number of false failure alarms is generated. The paper presents a combined application of several multivariate statistical techniques and shows how a monitoring method which integrates these tools can be successfully exploited in order to improve the reliability of the diagnostic systems.
