A new cepstral analysis procedure with the complex cepstrum for recovering excitations causing multiple transient signal components from vibration signals, especially from rotor vibration signals, has been developed. Along with the problem of singularity, a major problem of the cepstrum is that it cannot provide a correct distribution of the excitations. To solve these problems, a signal preprocessing method, whose function is to provide a definition for the distribution of the excitations along the quefrency axis and remove singular points from the transform, has been added to the cepstrum analysis. With this procedure, a correct distribution of the excitations can be obtained. An example of application to the condition monitoring of rotor machinery is also presented.
