**Calculation and measurement of torsionals in large steam turbosets**

•

Calculate the natural torsional frequencies and corresponding mode shapes for a resonance-free design at 1 and 2 times grid frequency.

•

Simulate extreme electrical disturbances in order to prove the mechanical integrity of the shaft journals.

Some utilities also ask for experimental verification of the natural torsional frequencies of the turbine generator trains in thermal power plants.

**Torsional shaft vibration can be excited in large steam turbine generator sets by electrical disturbance torques occurring in the active part of the generator. Due to the low torsional damping of the shaft trains, resonance can cause high torsional vibration amplitudes. Some thermal power plant operators therefore require turbine generator set vendors to provide experimental verification of the natural torsional shaft frequencies. ABB has developed a new measurement technique which allows torsional vibration to be measured in just one selected measurement plane. With today’s highly sensitive sensors and modern measurement data analysis equipment, the excitation due to normal random disturbances in the electrical grid provides sufficiently good results. All natural torsional frequencies in the range of interest are obtained with an accuracy of ± 0.2 Hz and identified using the calculated natural frequencies. The new measurement technique places no restrictions on normal power plant operation.**

**L**

arge steam turbine generator sets rated at 100 MW and higher consist of one or more steam turbines (high-pressure, intermediate-pressure and low-pressure) and a turbogenerator, which are rigidly coupled together as a single shaft train; there is no gearbox. The rated speed is equal to 1 or 0.5 times the grid frequency, being dependent on the frequency of the electrical grid (50 Hz or 60 Hz) and the number of generator poles (2 or 4).

Torsional vibrations can be excited in the shaft trains of large steam turbine generators by electrical disturbance torques occurring in the active part of the generator with 1 and 2 times the grid frequency. The torque amplitudes can be high, eg during short-time faults, or remain low over long operating periods.

Natural torsional frequencies which approach double the grid frequency (resonance) can cause damage to the steam turbine blades [1, 2] due to torsional shaft vibrations being excited by the negativesequence current.

In view of this, it is standard practice at

**Torsional vibrations in large turbine generator trains**

**General properties**

Consideration has to be given to the following:

•

Torsional vibrational motion is superposed on the continuous rotation of the rotor train. There is no link between the torsional vibration system and non-rotating parts, such as the casing.

•

Torsional vibrations in single-shaft power trains are not coupled to lateral shaft vibrations.

•

Torsional displacement amplitudes are very small (< 0.002 rad, equivalent to

< 0.1 °); dynamic torsional stresses in the shaft journal are therefore low during normal operation.

•

Torsional damping (due exclusively to material damping of the shaft) is very low. Critical damping ratios of torsional shaft modes are around 0.1 % and lower. Very low damping results in sharp resonance peaks with amplification factors higher than 300, allowing the natural frequencies to be easily identified.

•

Torsional shaft vibrations can be neither felt nor heard.

•

Torsional vibrations are practically insensitive to changes in shaft train conditions

(eg, minor unbalance), making torsional monitoring unsuitable for qualified condition control of steam turbine trains.

**Dynamic properties**

The torsional vibration system is characterized by the distribution of mass moments of inertia Θ, given by Θ = ∫ *r* 2 d*m *where *r *is the radius and *m *the mass, as well as by its torsional stiffness. The mass moment of inertia and the torsional stiffness vary considerably over the long steam turbine shaft

Knowledge of the distribution of the moment of inertia and the torsional stiffness helps in the interpretation of the torsional mode shapes of a turbine generator train.

This information is also very useful for defining modifications designed to tune a specific natural torsional frequency.

**Excitation of torsional vibration**

Torsional vibrations are excited in steam turbine generator trains by electromagnetic field disturbances in the air gap of the generator. Selection of the right number of

**Strong, short-time electrical disturbance torques**

These are caused by:

•

Short circuits in the electrical grid, transformer or generator stator windings

•

Synchronization failure

Strong, sudden dynamic excitation acts in just fractions of a second (< 0.3 s). The excitation frequency of the air-gap torque can be either the grid frequency in the case of synchronization failure, or 1 and 2 times the grid frequency in the case of short circuits. Its magnitude in each case depends on the electrical properties of the generator, the transformer and the grid. The maximum torque due to a fault may be as high as eight times the nominal torque of the unit. A line-to-line short circuit at the generator terminals is considered as an extreme electrical disturbance.

**Low, long-time electrical disturbance torques**

Excitation mechanisms are:

•

Negative-sequence current, due to unbalanced loading of the three current phases in the power system, causing an alternating air-gap torque to act on the generator with double the grid frequency. The allowed negative-sequence current is limited by international standards [3]. Torsional vibration caused by the allowed negative-sequence current must be low if train designs are to be free of resonance.

•

Subsynchronous resonance, which can occur if the generator is connected to long transmission lines (eg, 1000 km

The dynamic air-gap excitation torque acts uniformly over the length of the active part of the generator. The effective excitation of a mode shape depends on the mode shape in the region of the active part of the

GEN GEN

**Model for calculating torsional vibrations**

The mass moment of inertia and torsional stiffness of the turbine generator train are described by means of approximately 200 onedimensional finite elements with linear shape functions

**3**

. These FE elements have constant properties over their length [5].

The mass moment of inertia and torsional stiffness are described for each element separately in terms of the outer and inner diameters for mass and stiffness.

Young's modulus is applied as a function of the actual element temperature. The turbine rotor blades are modelled as an additional mass moment of inertia.

The accuracy of the results depends largely on the quality of the modelling of the turbine shaft train. Special know-how is needed, for example, to model the active part of the generator with its copper winding and wedges.

**Influence of vibration in long turbine blades on torsional vibrations in shaft trains**

The torsional vibrations in the turbine generator train are coupled to the vibration occurring in the long turbine rotor blades. To investigate this phenomena, a coupled shaft-blade model is used in which each blade row is separately modelled by means of a beam model with about 10 elements.

The beam model is linked to the torsional model of the shaft.

The number of degrees of freedom of rows considered.

*Torsional model of a low-pressure steam turbine rotor*

the coupled model is increased by the additional degrees of freedom of the blade

**Example**

The coupled shaft-blade model of a steam turbine shaft line with four modelled laststage blade rows shows two additional pairs of coupled first blade modes

**5**

. For one pair of these first blade modes the blade motion is in phase (M1 and M2) with the shaft torsional vibration; for the other pair it is in anti-phase (M3 and M4).

**Calculation of natural torsional frequencies and mode shapes**

The natural torsional frequencies and mode shapes are calculated using the torsional model

described above. Damping is not included due to the low damping of the train. The free-free vibration system has a rigid body mode at 0 Hz. For each mode shape of higher natural frequency, the number of vibration nodes is increased.

The coupling of the vibrations in the long turbine blades with the torsional vibration of the shaft train can be neglected due to the LP turbines having stiff, drum-type rotors of welded ABB design. Separate vibration designs for the rotor trains and long turbine blades provide the required results.

The signals, which were measured at different speeds and at short time intervals, were transformed into amplitude spectra for display in a Campbell diagram

**11**

. These spectra are collected as a function of the speed and are sorted in ascending order in the diagram. Campbell diagrams, in which the rotor speed is shown along the abscissa and the frequency of vibration as the ordinate, are commonly used in analyses of blade dynamics. A small vertical bar gives the amplitude of vibration for a certain speed and vibration frequency. Only amplitudes of high magnitude are plotted, those of very low magnitudes being neglected.

Three natural torsional frequencies of the generator rotor are found in the range up to 250 Hz. The torsional frequencies increase slightly with increasing rotor speed in the lower speed range and remain constant in the upper speed range.

This is due to the ‘stiffening’ of the rotor windings and wedges caused by the centrifugal force acting on them as the speed increases. Agreement between the calculated natural torsional frequencies

The measured amplitude spectra clearly show the natural torsional frequencies up to the single grid frequency. No significant resonance peaks are visible in the upper frequency range

**Torsional measurement test with synchronization failure**

The unit was synchronized with the electrical grid with a small phase displacement angle of about 5 °. This small electrical disturbance caused the shaft train to be excited with a torsional impulse. The responding torsional vibrations fade away after a fraction of a second (< 0.3 s). Only the lower natural torsional frequencies respond with detectable peaks in the amplitude spectrum.

The machine tested using this procedure was a 900-MW half-speed turbine generator train. The instrumentation was fixed onto the shaft journal in the workshop. Special attention was given to the fitting of the rotating measuring devices, such as the strain gauges, wires and trans-

**Ramp test, solid line-to-ground fault on HV side**

The unit was disconnected from the electrical grid and a solid line-to-ground fault set up on the HV side of the generator

**14**

. Afterwards, the generator rotor was excited with a low excitation current, and the shaft train was run up slowly with steam. The dynamic torque produced in the generator air gap has a frequency equal to the rotating speed times the pole number of the machine. In this example, the speed of the shaft train (with a four-pole generator) was increased and resonances of the natural torsional frequencies, corresponding to four times the rotational speed, were passed through.

The measured signals were transferred into the frequency domain by FFT and plotted in the Campbell diagram

. The sharp resonance peaks at the natural torsional frequencies are clearly visible on the four times speedline.

The natural torsional frequencies were measured at different speeds with different centrifugal force effects. Extrapolations were used to convert the measured natu-

**Torsional test with random excitation from the electrical grid**

During normal operation, minor disturbances of the type commonly found in electrical grids produce continual, random excitation of the natural torsional frequencies of the turbine generator train. The measured signals are sampled over a period of 30 minutes or more. By averaging some hundreds of FFTs, a final vibration spectrum is obtained which contains all the natural torsional frequencies in the frequency range of interest.

This test procedure was demonstrated by performing torsional measurements on a 600-MW half-speed turbine generator train.

**Summary**

By designing steam turbine trains with stiff,

ABB drum-type, welded LP rotors it is ensured that coupling of the blade vibrations in large steam turbines to the torsional vibration in the shaft train is negligible. Separate vibration designs for the shaft trains and long blades therefore provide adequate results. The natural torsional frequencies calculated during the design

Generally, the torsional vibrations excited by normal random distrubances in the grid can be measured by means of sufficiently sensitive strain gauges or accelerometers in just one measurement plane between the LP turbine rotor and generator rotor, assuming the availability of appropriate data acquisition systems. This procedure allows high-quality experimental verification of the specified natural torsional frequencies (± 0.2 Hz) during normal operation in thermal power plants.

As measurements in actual thermal power plants have demonstrated, the design methods available today allow the torsional vibrations in large steam turbine generator trains to be kept well under control.
