Rutkovsky V. Yu., Sukhanov V. M., Glumov V. M. A system for measuring radial gas-turbine unit’s shaft vibrations


The equations describing the dynamics of gas-turbine unit’s mechanics subject to elastic radial-angular vibrations are derived. A mathematical model is developed for the structure of rotational velocity (RV) sensor’s output signal. The model allows for the distortions of the geometry of sensor magnetic circuit’s air-gap caused by shaft vibrations. The equations describing the relationship between shaft bearing’s condition and the RV sensor signal’s parameters are introduced and an initial search algorithm with subsequent tracking of quality indices changing with the object’s “aging” is synthesized on the basis of adaptive filtering technique. A method for on-line monitoring of support bearings condition applicable at gas gas-turbine units of gas and oil pipelines is developed. The method is based on the detection of compressor’s RV sensor signal for getting the information about the changes of key process parameters.
