Time-Frequency Modeling and Detection of random non-stationary signals for Monitoring Purposes

Abstract : This paper deals with the modelization and detection of non-stationary random signals in the time-frequency space. A time-frequency random model of signal is derived from a given temporal model. The time model we are interested in consists in a deterministic signal embedded in an additive centered Gaussian perturbation. This Gaussian model is characterized by two parameters, which are the mean and covariance matrix of the process. The corresponding time-frequency model depends on the time-frequency transform applied to the signal. For the spectrogram, the determinant parameters are the nature and length of the analysis window and the zero-padding. We show that for a Gaussian signal, spectrogram coefficients distribution can be approximated by a $chi^2$ law defined by three parameters. A time-frequency signal detection task inspired from a Neyman-Pearson strategy is performed on the basis of this probabilistic time-frequency model. The detector determines the time-frequency regions where signal energy is present. It thus provides a time-frequency signature of the signal. This information is used for structural health monitoring techniques. Extraction of the fundamental meshing frequency and harmonics of a gearbox under varying load conditions is presented.
