- Fundamental Study of Detection of Plastic Gear Failure Signs (March/April 2015)
This paper proposes a new method â€” using neural oscillators â€” for filtering out background vibration noise in meshing plastic gear pairs in the detection of signs of gear failure. In this paper these unnecessary frequency components are eliminated with a feed-forward control system in which the neural oscillatorâ€™s synchronization property works. Each neural oscillator is designed to tune the natural frequency to a particular one of the components.
