Detecting bearing failures through stator current measurements (MCSA) seems quite tricky. However, using electrical signals, we are able to construct a crystal clear view of the rotor position relative to the stator housing during operation. In the following case, we detected a cocked bearing just after an overhaul of a 200 kW compressor (small cage frequency sidebands around the rotor bar passing frequency). The machine was revised again before abrupt failure and collateral damage could arise.
