Targeting at the problem of finding the best demodulation band when applying envelope analysis in rolling bearing fault diagnosis, this paper proposes a novel Fast Kurtogram Demodulation Method (FKDM) to solve the problem. FKDM is established based on the theory of spectrum kurtosis and the short-time Fourier Transform. It determines the best demodulation band firstly, which is also known as the central frequency and frequency resolution. Then, the fault signals can be demodulated in the obtained frequency band by using envelope demodulation algorithm. The FKDM method ensures the fault diagnosis correction by solving the problem of demodulation band selection. Applied FKDM in rolling bearing fault diagnosis and compared with conventional envelope analysis, the results demonstrate FKDM can achieve a better performance.
