This paper presents a data driven case study of two outer-race spalling faults in double-row spherical roller main-bearings, with the purpose of identifying key features and relevant measurements associated with this failure mode in wind turbine main-bearings. Supervisory data is analysed for one fault case and vibration data for the other. The aim of this work is to inform practitioners and assist in improving fault detection systems for this component.
