In this paper, we attempt to apply breaking bars and broken ring segments faults to a squirrel cage induction motor, which involve the same conditioning. The principle objective in this manuscript is how to clarify the difference in terms of amplitude and frequency, the outcomes of this test system examined by comparing with that of a healthy induction motor, these comparisons reveal the efficient of the PSD analysis.
