The bearing is a component of the support shaft that guides the rotational movement of the shaft, widely used in the mechanical industry and also called a mechanical joint. In bearing fault diagnosis, the accuracy much depends on the feature extraction, which always needs a lot of training samples and classification in the commonly used methods. Neural networks are good at latent feature extraction and fault classification, however, they have problems with instability and over-fitting, and more

Switchable normalization and semi-supervised learning are introduced to solve the above obstacles in this paper, which proposes a novel bearing fault diagnosis method based on switchable normalization semi-supervised generative adversarial networks (SN-SSGAN) with 1-dimensional representation of vibration signals as input. Experimental results showed that the proposed method has a desirable 99.93% classification accuracy in the case of less labeled data from the public data set of West Reserve University, which is better than the state-of-the-art methods.
