Example of rotation-tracking diagram of engine vibration


This software enables tracking analysis with high-speed (calculation speed: approx. at 20ms/4-ch), high-resolution (1000 blocks max.) and high-accuracy (more than 100dB dynamic range). It can plot rotation-tracking diagram during calculation, and also can set and plot the diagram of intended order or frequency after the calculation. *DS-0321 series FFT analysis software is required.

What is Tracking analysis

Rotating machines such as engines or compressors etc. are rotating with wide range of rotation speed from low to high speed. For those rotating machines, resonance between rotation speed and natural frequency of each component (rotation shaft, gear, bracket etc.) of rotating machine may be causing serious problem. As an example of torsional vibration including large generator, resonance may generate excitation energy lager than allowable stress, and therefore it causes serious accident to destruction. Rotation-tracking analysis helps greatly to observe the cause such as which component or order of rotation speed makes noise and vibration when a rotating machine makes vibration with certain rotation speed. As shown in the below, rotation-spectrum diagram (3D spectrum) figures out the change of frequency (order) spectrum respect to the change of rotation speed. In comparison, rotation-tracking analysis (order tracking analysis) shows that how much noise and vibration are generated from which order of rotation component with two-dimensional graph.

*Rotational order is defined that a based rotational speed is 1-order, n-times rotational component is n-order. Data analysis with order on the X axis and amplitude on the Y axis is called rotational order ratio analysis. Rotational order ratio analysis requires rotational signal information.
