Fault diagnosis method for spherical roller bearing of

For the non-stationary characteristics of the vibration signal of wind turbine’s roller bearing in fault condition, a bearing fault diagnosis method based on variational mode decomposition (VMD) and singular value decomposition (SVD) is proposed. The VMD method is used to decompose wind turbine’s roller bearing’s fault vibration signal into several components.
