Bump test is generally used to determine the natural frequencies of a structure through experimental. However, this technique required all the system in shut down condition in order to perform modal testing. The presence of ambient force such as motor unbalanced can cause errors in measurement of time response. Therefore, a study on how to improve the quality of the acquired signals in bump test is crucial in order to increase the efficiency of the bump test technique under the presence of ambient force. This paper introduces a method to suppress the ambient component in measured vibration response using the wavelet-based filter. The two experiments have been carried involving two different conditions, shutdown condition and operating condition. The sources of the ambient in operating condition are induced from a motor and speed controller cooling fan. The proposed method utilizes the discrete wavelet transform (DWT) and improvised spectral subtraction in filtering the ambient response. The discrete wavelet transform (DWT) is applied to both ambient data and total response data to decompose the signal by a factor of two into several levels of the wavelet decomposition. The modification of the discrete wavelet transform (DWT) method has been done where the wavelet thresholding is replaced with the spectral subtraction to suppress the ambient in the signal. The spectral subtraction is used to suppress the ambient in each wavelet coefficient at each level of decomposition to avoid the losses of useful signal data while filtering the ambient. The decomposed wavelet signal is reconstructed and the result is being compared with the baseline data. The Frequency Response Function (FRF) for bump test under operating condition shows the peak frequencies at the corresponding excitation speed, which not refer to natural frequencies due to the baseline measurement. Those harmonics component due to ambient excitation was successfully suppressed using the wavelet-based filter and the main features in baseline measurement were retained. The results show that the proposed approach is effective to suppress the ambient effect in vibration response measurement
