Nowadays, renewable energy has been emerging as the major source of energy and is driven by its aggressive expansion and falling costs. Most of the renewable energy sources involve turbines and their operation and maintenance are vital and a difficult task. Condition monitoring and fault diagnosis have seen remarkable and revolutionary up-gradation in approaches, practices and technology during the last decade. Turbines mostly do use a rotating type of machinery and analysis of those signals has been challenging to localize the defect. This paper proposes a new hybrid model wherein multiple swarm intelligence models have been evaluated to optimize the conventional Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) model in classifying the faults from the vibration signals data acquired from the gearbox. This helps to analyze the performance and behavioral patterns of the system more effectively and efficiently which helps to suggest for replacement of the unit with higher precision. The results have demonstrated that the proposed hybrid modeling approach is effective in classifying the faults of the gearbox from the time series data and achieve higher diagnostic accuracy in comparison to the conventional LSTM methods.
