Electrical machines, induction motors in particular, play a key role in domestic and industrial applications. They act as a work horse in almost every industry and are responsible for a big proportion of total generated electricity consumption worldwide. The faults in induction motors are degenerative in nature and can lead to a catastrophic situation if not diagnosed earlier. The failures can cause considerable financial loss in the form of unexpected downtime. Broken rotor bar is a very common and frequently occurring fault in most of industrial induction motors. To select a better, more accurate and reliable fault diagnostic technique, this paper presents a comprehensive literature survey on the existing motor current signature analysis (MCSA) based fault diagnostic techniques. Different well-known MCSA based fault diagnostic techniques are summarized in the form of basic theories, considering complexity of their implementation, merits and demerits.
