In recent years, many motor fault diagnosis methods have been proposed by analyzing vibration, sound, electrical signals, etc. To detect motor fault without additional sensors, in this study, we developed a fault diagnosis methodology using the signals from a motor servo driver. Based on the servo driver signals, the demagnetization fault diagnosis of permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSMs) was implemented using an autoencoder and K-means algorithm. In this study, the PMSM demagnetization fault diagnosis was performed in three states: normal, mild demagnetization fault, and severe demagnetization fault. The experimental results indicate that the proposed method can achieve 96% accuracy to reveal the demagnetization of PMSMs.
