Rotor vibration characteristics are first analyzed, when the rotor winding inter-turn short circuit fault, the air-gap dynamic eccentricity fault, the air-gap static eccentricity fault and the imbalance fault occurs. Next, the generator stator current characteristics on the faults also were analyzed, the results show that the faults can’t be diagnosed based only on rotor vibration characteristics or stator current characteristics. But considering the differences of compositive characteristics of the rotor vibration and stator current caused by different rotor faults, a new method of generator vibration fault diagnosis, based on compositive characteristics, is developed. Finally, the rotor vibration and stator current of a type SDF-9 generator is measured in the laboratory to verify the theoretical analysis presented above.
