Method and apparatus for diagnosing and controlling rotating stall and surge in rotating machinery










Image Number 5 for United States Patent #6092029.

A method and apparatus is provided for diagnosing and correcting rotating stall and surge in rotating machines by monitoring dynamic shaft precession and comparing this precession with a standard and altering the precession as the machine approaches a destabilizing condition when indicated by the comparison step. Axial vibration monitoring means is also provided for monitoring and comparing a dynamic axial vibration of the machine with a standard and altering the axial vibration as the machine approaches a destabilizing condition. Furthermore, the instant invention measures the complex dynamic stiffness of the machine and computes the direct dynamic stiffness and the quadrature dynamic stiffness for use as a destabilizing warning device by monitoring for a drop in direct dynamic stiffness and/or a coincidence of zero crossing of both the direct dynamic stiffness and the quadrature dynamic stiffness components. One embodiment for altering the rotating stall and/or surge is by a controlled active servobearing.
