An electrical machine, its support structure and the load to which it is coupled, form a complex electromechanical system. It can receive impulsive excitations that vibrates it at its own natural frequency, or it can be forced, by the exciting air -gap electromagnetic fi eld or torque spectrum of the driven or driving machine, at many different frequencies. These frequencies may cause the machine to emit an unacceptably high level of acoustic noise, or cause progressive mechanical damage, due to high cycle fatigue, which ends in a machine failure mode.
