In this paper we present the results of applying the cross-correlation (CC) method based on the in-place fast Haar wavelet transform (IpFHWT) to visualize the propagation signals associated with contact on a model turbine rotor. It is required to detect typical vibration and to localize the position of failure in turbine and generator accurately. Because modern power plants usually use one-high pressure and one or two lower pressure turbines and a generator, we use the turbine model with three rotors. The cross-correlation of acceleration signals is obtained in the time-frequency domain by using the CC-IpFHWT. From the cross-correlation the signals accompanied by the contact can be extracted.
