Abstract. In order to excavate the relationship between the different features of the vibration signal, and to provide more useful information for the fault diagnosis of rolling bearings, this paper developed a new method of fault diagnosis-health baseline method and introduced the technological process of this method in detail. Through the case study, a health baseline based on two kinds of linear models was constructed. After testing, this method can distinguish the normal state of the rolling bearing, the external ring fault and the rolling element fault, which indicates that the method was feasible and effective for the fault diagnosis of the rolling bearing.
