Condition monitoring is used to frequently monitor the parts of an engine. Since the failures are predicted in advance, the lifetime of the machine is increased, thereby minimizing the maintenance costs. Among the many techniques used for condition monitoring such as static, dynamics, thermal and Tribology, vibration analysis comes under the dynamic techniques. In this paper, the frequency domain analysis, which is one of the commonly used techniques in vibration analysis, is used for diagnosis of bearing faults. The methods used for frequency domain analysis in this paper are Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT), Envelope Analysis and Resampling. It has been found out that, envelope analysis gives better results than the remaining methods.
