Abstract: Gearbox functions as a significant transmission module in the mechanical devices in spite of its failure prone nature and hence there exists a need for the diagnosing the gearbox faults with an optimized solution and new methods should be engaged for improving the effectiveness, accuracy, reliability and few other such parameters. These attempts could meet the growing requirements for the condition monitoring in the detection of gear faults. The feature selection process is a notable process in the machine learning to achieve good performance in the diagnostic process. This framework builds up an innovative structure for fault diagnosis in the gearbox system. Six vibrating signals which are healthy gear signal, fault gear signal, healthy gear signal affected by noise, faulty gear signal affected by noise, distributed fault signal, and local fault signal have been generated with the prescribed dataset and the feature extraction was done by employing the Modified Short-Time Fourier Transform on the basis of Blackman window. This step was followed by selection of the features by using the combination of Genetic algorithm and Frog Leaping algorithm that is termed as GFLA. This novelty approach enhances the initialization process thereby enabling for the calculation of accurate best score calculation. The classification method is performed Support points on the basis of neural network. Finally the performance analysis with respect to the existing methodologies proved the efficiency in detecting the fault of the proposed framework.
