Targeting the nonlinear and nonstationary characteristics of vibration signal from fault roller bearing and scarcity of fault samples, a novel method is presented and applied to roller bearing fault diagnosis in this paper. Firstly, the nonlinear and nonstationary vibration signal produced by local faults of roller bearing is decomposed into intrinsic scale components (ISCs) by using local characteristic-scale decomposition (LCD) method and initial feature vector matrices are obtained. Secondly, fault feature values are extracted by singular value decomposition (SVD) techniques to obtain singular values, while avoiding the selection of reconstruction parameters. Thirdly, a support vector machine (SVM) classifier based on Chemical Reaction Optimization (CRO) algorithm, called CRO-SVM method, is designed for classification of fault location. Lastly, the proposed method is validated by two experimental datasets. Experimental results show that the proposed method based LCD-SVD technique and CRO-SVM method have higher classification accuracy and shorter cost time than the comparative methods.
