There are two set of probes in gas turbines. The shaft relative vibrations (micrometer peak to peak) are measured by none contact probes. The condition monitoring systems of these kinds of probes are usually Bently Nevada. Besides, Absolute Vibration (mm/s RMS) are measured by contact probes. Both systems equipped with alert and danger facilities in process main board sub stations.

This type of lubricants are improved the machine performance. Besides, these lubricants are usually used for high speed machines. Tribology performance, especially the anti-wear property of this lubricant are considerably improved .
The signal processing methods are developed too much in recent years. One of the alternative statistical analysis is known as I-kaz Multi Level method. This method was originally developed base on I-kaz TM but with higher order of signal decomposition.

Suitable maintenance policies can be selected .

3. Results and Discussion
In this part a case history related to Gas Turbine SIEMENS V94.2 is explained. This gas turbine is related to Iran Power Plant Industry in Fars Province and is in main operation board high vibration.
Duration: Tuesday, April 24, 2012 to Friday, May 4, 2012.
After facing some problems in gas turbine Fars utility startup period, the gas turbine was tripped in 1000 RPM. The trip was because of high amounts of vibrations. The vibration groups were take part a session for analyzing the balancing condition of rotor and gas turbine foundation.
Both the balancing and foundation maintenance data was in good conditions then vibration groups decided to close monitoring the gas turbine. Further investigations in maintenance history showed that gas turbine middle shaft was falling during machinery maintenance actions and installed after repair in machinery workshop. There was a strong hypothesis that this may the main root of all vibration problems in this machine. The vibration analysis of hypothesis are discussed.
Besides, other possibilities are mentioned. First, the electronic group checked the absolute and relative conditioners to adjust the related options with technical documents. Then the analyzer group readjust all the adaptation numbers in turning gear condition with technical document. After that, all the relative vibrations in turbine, compressor and generator were monitored in 600 RPM in the next stage.
The operation condition were not agree to continue increasing RPM then in the next day the gas turbine first start up to 600 RPM then process were decided to reduce the RPM up to 450 and after one hour they were increased the RPM little by little up to 990 RPM gradually. In this stage Gas turbine trip occurred because of high amount of absolute vibrations. As we checked all the trend of vibration monitoring data it was clear that the gas turbine did not have any problem up to 750 RPM.
In addition, there was an acceptable adaptation between all monitoring systems in process board and CM vibration trends in both absolute and relative monitoring systems. Unfortunately, after 750 RPM the related vibrations were increasing gradually. In addition, the absolute vibrations were increased dramatically after 940 RPM but relative vibrations were decreased slightly.
Absolute vibrations were increased and relative vibrations were decreased simultaneously! This increasing in absolute vibration in turbine side was 17.5 mm/s RMS that caused vibration trip in 990 RPM.
The absolute and relative vibrations were decreased slightly in the same manner in trip period. Furthermore, All journals temperature monitoring trends was normal and in range during this period. The decreasing relative vibration with increasing in absolute vibration never seen in other gas turbines by the vibration groups and seem to be a new vibration behavior!
Because of low frequency condition, the absolute sensors cannot help in vibration analysis but there is some valuable information in relative sensors data that called slow roll in CM texts and will help us in shaft centerline analysis.
Vibrations in 750 RPM should be focused because of the higher amplitudes. Besides, The FFT in 600 RPM is shown in Figure 14.
750 RPM approximately is beginning of the first gas turbine SIEMENS162MW- V94.2 critical speed and the vibration data in this condition can help too much for the gas turbine vibration analysis.
The gas turbine vibration modal analysis is shown in Figure 17. Vibration modal analysis is obtained by using the phase values and their trends in different locations (points).
Vibration monitoring system in operation main board showed that the relative vibration decreased suddenly when absolute vibration caused gas turbine trip. In addition, CM vibration graphs indicated the same information.
The reason of this phenomena could be discovered by drawing bode diagrams for relative vibration sensors in both turbine and compressor.
As shown in above bode diagrams, overall amplitude vibration was decreased in one sensor and was increased in other sensor simultaneously!
This increasing behavior is related to a turbine side mode of vibration for 940 RPM in 30 sensor but this mode of vibration was disappeared and was replaced by another mode of vibration in 90 sensor.
This phenomena was caused high amount of vibrations in turbine side and was occurred after increasing RPM. Besides, this phenomena are indicated in gas turbine Nyquist diagrams and is called Split Resonance. Split Resonance may cause Backward whirl between 940 to 980 RPM in both turbine and compressor journals .
Finally, turbine and compressor relative vibrations waterfall or three-dimensional FFT diagrams were obtained (for startup and trip). These diagrams were developed some hypothesis in gas turbine fault diagnosis.
In this part, most critical equipment rotor faults is compared with the vibration evidences in mentioned gas turbine. Small amount of these kinds of faults usually are existed in normal behavior of industrial rotors but high amounts of these faults may cause trip in all somewhat most critical equipment.
The piezoelectric layers are used for sensors and actuators. Micro vibrations, generally defined as low amplitude vibrations at frequencies up to 1 kHz. An adaptive inverse dynamics control was used to suppress the vibration of a simply supported panel. These kinds of techniques can effectively utilize in most critical equipment condition monitoring systems .
In addition, stochastic identification technique is proposed to estimate both the parameters and order of multi-input and multi-output vibrating structural systems. In complex machinery systems like gas turbine hundreds of parts may originate hundreds of frequency vibration is such a complex condition time modeling systems like vibration modal analysis. These techniques are utilized in fault diagnosis and sometime cause some partial modification to improve the machine performance and machine vibration behavior .
Sub harmonic vibrations existed specially in higher RPM of gas turbine but trip was in low RPM and wear could not be a main problem. Angular misalignment are based on axial vibrations and there was no high axial vibrations in this machine. In addition, Phase analysis information were provided no evidence of any misalignment. There was no 0.48 X (X=current rotor RPM) in this gas turbine FFT then Oil whip/whirl could not be the problem.
It is worthy to know that, recent investigations showed that lateral natural frequencies are increased by applying tension axial loading and decreased by applying compression axial loading at the ends of the rotating shaft. Gas turbine vibration behavior was provided no evidences of natural frequencies. Besides, the axial vibrations was not too high .
Moreover, there was no shaft crack evidences like 2X in half critical speed (Due to three dimensional or waterfall FFT). Besides, there was no rotary looseness evidences in gas turbine TWF. In addition, foundation phase analysis showed that there is no looseness in the gas turbine.
Turbine limit load control is one of the most important parts in any gas turbine system that has direct effects in vibration behavior of machine.
There are a number of methods recently are developed for these kinds of behaviors and characteristics in gas turbines . Three condition should be exist simultaneously to represent unbalance . Fist all relative vibrations in different directions should be considerably high. After that, none contact main vibrations should have 90 shift phase. Finally, the main frequency should be 1X in FFT.
All these evidences was existed in this gas turbine. This evidences was showed that the vibration analysis group should predicted rotor unbalance. Therefore, vibration analysis team was recommended gas turbine field balance.
After field balance of the rotor, turbine started up (Some interesting case reports related to similar gas turbines field balances were discussed in ).
Both absolute and relative vibrations were reduced too much. All vibrations were in range of technical documents. There was no trip in Bently Nevada panels and there was no abnormal noise in gas turbine any more.
4. Current and Future Development
The process parameters like inlet and outlet pressure and temperature trends should be monitored and make sure that all parameters are in the gas turbine technical document ranges. In addition, changing in load and RPM should be monitored accurately. These kinds of process abnormalities sometime cause serious mechanical problems.
Besides, the condition monitoring groups should have provide good trends of different vibration data and graphs like absolute and relative over all vibrations, FFT, TWF and phase characteristics in different points and directions.
Furthermore, vibration analysts should have good understanding and back ground about machinery characteristics of gas turbine.
After comparing the vibration trends and data with machinery and process evidences for different main machine faults like wear, misalignment, Oil whip/whirl, shaft crack, looseness and unbalance, the vibration analysts could recommend optimal maintenance action on gas turbine or any other most critical equipment.
