Conventional vibration-based condition monitoring (VCM) of rotating machines with a multiple bearing system, such as Turbo-generator (TG) sets, is data intensive. Since a number of sensors are required at each bearing location, the task of diagnosing faults on such systems may be impossible for even an experienced analyst. Hence, the current study aims to develop a simplified fault diagnosis (FD) method that uses just a single vibration and a single temperature sensor on each bearing. Initial trials on an experimental rotating rig indicate that supplementing vibration data with temperature measurements gave improved FD when compared with FD using vibration data alone. Observations made from the initial trials are presented in this paper.
