Possibilities of application of the acoustic method for the on load tab changers diagnosis has been presented in the paper. The analysis of measurement results gathered during research works performed under laboratory conditions has been presented in detail. The registered acoustic signals have been analyzed in time and time-frequency domains. The time domain analysis has been performed by presentation of time runs and their envelopes determined by use of the Hilbert transform. Evaluation of the time-frequency components has been performed by use of the short-time Fourier transform, the discrete and the continuous wavelet transforms.
