Although Ensemble empirical mode decomposition (EEMD) method has been successfully applied to various applications, features extracted using EEMD could not detect anomalies for roller bearings, especially when anomalies includes small defects. In this study a novel feature extraction method is proposed to detect the state of roller bearings. Performance improved EEMD, which is a reliable adaptive method to calculate an appropriate noise amplitude is applied to decompose the acceleration signals into zer0-mean components called intrinsic mode functions (IMFs). Then, three dimensional feature vectors are created by applying the Teager-Kaiser energy operator (TKEO) to the first three IMFs. The novel features obtained from the healthy bearing signals are utilized to construct the separating hyperplane using one-class support vector machine (SVM). In order to validate the method proposed, a number of operating conditions (shaft speed and load) are considered to generate the data (vibration signals) by means of an assembled test rig. It is shown that the proposed method can successfully identify the states of the new samples (healthy and faulty). The uncertainty of the model prediction is investigated computing Margin and the number of support vectors. It create less complex (less fraction of support vectors) and more reliable (higher Margin) hyperplane than the EEMD method.
