Torsional vibration of a two-stage gear train system is investigated, considering backlash and crack. Two criteria are used to detect backlash and crack for the purpose of vibration monitoring. A discretized model is considered which consists of a servomotor, a two-stage gearbox and a brake. It is shown that second moment of acceleration increases, increasing backlash. Kurtosis number diagnoses the tooth crack. Abrupt change in Kurtosis number shows that crack has been developed.
