Bearing Fault Identification Based on Deep Convolution Residual Network
Keywords:bearing fault identification; residual block; deep convolution residual network; end-to-end learning; deep learning
Bearings are important parts in industrial production and are related to the normal operation of mechanical equipment. For bearing fault identification， traditional method often includes feature extraction, which involves professional prior knowledge and is time-consuming. This paper proposes the deep convolution residual network (DCRN) to identify the bearing fault. Based on the end-to-end learning characteristics of deep neural networks, this method can directly use raw data for training, and does not require feature extraction. Moreover, under the effect of skip connection, DCRN can exert the powerful fitting ability of deep neural network. In this paper, by stacking residual blocks, three different architecture of DCRN are designed and all three achieve very high accuracy, respectively 99.60%, 99.71% and 99.81%. Compared with other methods, DCRN have better generalization performance.
