DC motors & fault analysis

Abstract—Over the last 20 years, Current Signature Analysis (CSA) has become an established tool for online fault analysis of AC Induction motors. Presently, very little research has been performed using current signature analysis on DC motors. This paper is a brief introduction to online fault diagnosis of DC motors using current signature analysis.
