Success of any health monitoring system chiefly relies on the effectiveness of condition monitoring parameter. The parameter could be a single or combination of many vibration features. These features are expected to have a monotonic trend with the damage/fault progression. Ranking mutual information technique has the ability to detect the features that have monotonic trend and PCA is a popular and widely accepted multidimensional analysis tool for the feature fusion. A condition monitoring method is presented in this paper by combining EMD, ranking mutual information and PCA. The proposed method is helpful in generation of the indicator that represents the damage progression. This method is tested on the impeller health condition monitoring of a pump.
