The theory of signal detection using the Wigner-Ville Distribution (WVD) and the Cross Wagner-Ville Distribution (XWVD) is reviewed, and applied to the signaturing, detection, and identification of some specific machine sounds - the individual cylinder firings of a marine engine. For this task, a 4 step procedure has been devised. The Autocorrelation Function (ACF) is first employed for ascertaining the number of engine cylinders and the firing rate of the engine. Cross-correlation techniques are then used for detecting the occurrence of cylinder firing events. This is followed by the use WVD and XWVD based analyses to produce high resolution Time-Frequency signatures, and finally 2D correlations are employed for identification of the cylinders. The proposed methodology is applied to real data.
