This paper presents the method estimating the contribution of vibration sources in gasoline engine with a multiple input system. Multi Dimensional Spectral Analysis (MDSA) has used to identify the cause of a linear dependence indicated by an ordinary coherence function. In order to apply the MDSA to the vibration source identification in gasoline engine, the virtual model of two inputs and single output system is simulated. For the validation of this model, the vibration of alternator was measured by using tri-axial accelerometers attached on the selected vibration source. After calculating the coherence analysis between each source based on the virtual model, the vibration contribution of alternator is calculated.
