The performance and effects is critical factor in industry, especially usage power inverter such as motor, switching and control circuit. Until now, the statistic of effects still increase in the application. In order to overcome this, the spectrogram technique is used to represent the signals in time frequency representation (TFR). This paper introduces time-frequency distribution (TFD) technique for detecting and identifying the open circuit fault in application of inverter. The condition monitoring is based on time-frequency distribution. Since Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) is one of the techniques to analyze the signal, but it has some limitations in non-stationary signal. From TFR the parameters such as root means square voltage (Vrms), total waveform distortion (TWD), total harmonic distortion (THD) and total non-harmonics (TnHD) for voltage source inverter (VSI) are used to identify the characteristic of the signals. The result shows that spectrogram technique capable to identify and evaluate the information of voltage source inverter (VSI). The proposed technique is verified as simulation results.
