Multivariable supervision systems for online monitoring of induction motors allow large versatility and diagnosis robustness. As regards rotor faults, the diagnostic procedure based on sideband current components may fail due to the presence of interbar currents that reduce the degree of rotor asymmetry and, thus, the amplitude of these spectral components. On the other hand, the interbar currents produce core vibrations in the axial direction; these vibrations can be detected using a suitable vibration sensor. In this paper, a differential fault analysis based on traditional motor current signature analysis (MCSA) and on radial and axial vibration monitoring is proposed to discern cases in which the presence of interbar currents decreases the sensitivity of MCSA. The features of stator currents and of radial and axial core vibration signals are investigated in order to increase the reliability of the diagnostic system. Moreover, to explore the possibility of obtaining further information, stray flux signals are taken into account.
