The study proposes an improved Gabor order tracking (GOT) technique to cope with crossing orders that cannot be effectively separated using the original GOT scheme. The improvement aids both the reconstruction and interpretation of two crossing orders such as a transmission-element-regarding order component and a structural resonant component. In the paper, the influence of the dual function to Gabor expansion coefficients is investigated, which can affect the precision of the tracked order component. Additionally, using the GOT scheme in noise conditions is demonstrated as well. For applying the improved GOT in real tasks, separation and extraction of close-order components of vibration signals measured from a transmission-element test bench is illustrated using both the GOT and Vold-Kalman filtering (VKF) OT schemes. Finally, comprehensive comparisons between the improved GOT and VKF_OT schemes are made from processing results.
