In light of the complex and non-stationary characteristics of misalignment vibration signal, this paper proposed a novel method to analyze in time-frequency domain under different working conditions. Firstly, decompose raw misalignment signal into different frequency bands by wavelet packet (WP) and reconstruct it in accordance with the band energy to remove noises. Secondly, employ empirical mode decomposition (EMD) to the reconstructed signal to obtain a certain number of stationary intrinsic

In this way, weak signal is caught and dominant frequency is picked up for the diagnosis of misalignment fault. Experimental results show that the proposed method is able to detect misalignment fault characteristic frequency effectively.
