Application of the projective input residual method to diagnosis of failure mechanical systems

Bartosz Powałka, Krzysztof Marchelek
The paper is concerned with the method of failure detection on the basis of incomplete measurements, which means that the number of measured signals is lower than the number of degrees of freedom of mechanical systems. The method does not require the reduction of the number of degrees of freedom of the mathematical model and therefore the identified parameters can be physically interpreted. The proposed indicator used to detect the damaged element is based on the comparison of partial derivatives of the input residuals of the damaged and undamaged models. The method will be illustrated with an example of FWD-32J milling machine.
