Mostly the faults in electrical machines are related with the bearings. Thus, a reliable bearing condition monitoring scheme able to detect either local or distributed defects are mandatory to avoid a breakdown in the machine. So far, the research has been carried out mainly in the detection of local faults, such as balls and raceways faults, but surface roughness is not so reported. This paper deals with a novel and reliable scheme capable to detect any fault that may occur in a bearing, based on EXIN Curvilinear Component Analysis, CCA, and Neural Network. The EXIN CCA, which is an improvement of the Curvilinear Component Analysis, has been conceived for data visualization, interpretation and classification for real time industrial applications. The effectiveness of this condition monitoring scheme has been verified by experimental results obtained from different operation conditions.
