The deceleration and running down operation of any rotating system when analysed would lead to useful input function for condition monitoring. When the power supply to any rotor system is cut off, total momentum gained through the sustained operation will dissipate and the system will come to halt. The time elapsed between the power cutoff and the complete stop of the system is defined as CDT (Coast Down Time). The tribological behaviour could be effectively monitored through this parameter (CDT), which has been conducted on a horizontal rotor system with a full journal bearing at different speed and lubrication pressures. The characteristics are compared with steady state vibration in order to emphasize the potential benefit of using CDT as a useful diagnostic parameter for condition monitoring.
