Abstract
This paper presents the effects of cooling air flow rate on the rotordynamic performance of the oil-free power turbine driven by a micro turbo-jet engine. The cooling air flow removes heat conducted from the hot turbine and flows out through the hollow turbine shaft and the supporting GFJBs and GFTBs. A series of rotor coast-down tests reveal that the increasing cooling air flow decreases dramatically the amplitudes of sub-synchronous motions at 50 krpm and delays the onset speed of sub-synchronous motions. Presently, the authors believe that the rotordynamic improvement with increasing axial flow rates are attributed to a decrease in the radial bearing clearance due to radial thermal expansions and/or a reduction in the destabilizing force caused by the crosscoupled stiffness . Future work will focus on the analysis and discussion about the present test results.
