Research on Blind Source Separation for Machine Vibrations
Blind source separation is a signal processing method based on independent component analysis, its aim is to separate the source signals from a set of observations (output of sensors) by assuming the source signals independently. This paper reviews the general concept of BSS firstly; especially the theory for convolutive mixtures, the model of convolutive mixture and two deconvolution structures, then adopts a BSS algorithm for convolutive mixtures based on residual cross-talking error threshold control criteria, the simulation testing points out good performance for simulated mixtures.
