steam turbine vibration

steam turbine vibration

steam turbine vibration

On a steam turbine , when we increase the load the vibration increase " the amplitude valve " more than the limit and causes alarm , but does this value is supposed to be constant with increasing load or it changes but with limits ? Also if we have an unbalance case does the amplitude is large but constant ?

RE: steam turbine vibration

Please could you be more clear?

RE: steam turbine vibration

Not sure how you expect a meaningful response when you have not provided any meaningful information. So how about some questions to get you started:
- Where is your vibration? At speed, half speed, 40% speed ....
- What is a "the amplitude valve"? Assume you mean inlet control valve?
- Are you asking if your vibration limits are supposed to change with increasing load?

RE: steam turbine vibration

In general, I'd say that if you have a natural frequency problem then a vibration would increase with a larger load (bearing reactions get larger and input force to the spring-mass system gets higher) unless the damping is increasing at higher rate.

If you have a balance problem then if the increased loads and reactions cause a greater eccentricity then your vibration level will increase.

White Paper - How ESI is Helping Move New Medical Device Product to Market Quicker & More Cost Effic
Early Supplier Involvement has long been a strategy employed by manufacturers to produce innovative products. Now, it almost seems like a necessity. Because decisions made in the design phase can positively affect product quality and costs, this can help add value to OEM bottom lines. This white paper will discuss many facets of ESI, including why it’s so valuable today, what challenges limit the benefits of ESI, how cost is impacted, and more. Download Now
White Paper - Moving to a Driverless Future
This white paper describes what we see as the best practices to support a sustainable engineering process for autonomous vehicle design. It exposes how to use simulation and testing in common frameworks to enable design exploration, verification and validation for the development of autonomous cars at a system, software and full-vehicle level to drive a mature product development process for automated driving.

Research Report - How Engineers are Using Remote Access
Remote access enables engineers to work from anywhere provided they have an internet connection. We surveyed our audience of engineers, designers and product managers to learn how they use remote access within their organizations. We wanted to know which industries have adopted remote access, which software they are using, and what features matter most. Download Now
