The current state-of-the-art in vibration-based condition monitoring of rotating machines requires a number of vibration transducers at each bearing pedestal of a rotating machine to identify any faults, in the machine. In this paper, the use of the bispectrum has been proposed for fault diagnosis in rotating machines. The reason for this is that it may reduce the number of vibration transducers at each bearing pedestal in rotating machines in the future. The paper presents a comparison of the bispectrum results for four cases, namely; Healthy, Misaligned shaft, Crack Shaft and Shaft Rub on an experimental rig consisting of two rigidly coupled shafts supported through 4 ball bearings. Only one accelerometer has been used for this purpose at each bearing and the initial results observed are encouraging.
