Due to the disturbance of electric power system or other shock load, the torsional vibration of turbine-generator shafts occurs. Alternative shear stress due to torsional vibration decreases the shafts life, even results in shafts broken. It is significant to calculate and analyze natural properties and the responses of tosional vibration excited by the disturbance of electric power system in order to analyze and prevent catastrophic accident. The calculation and analysis system of torsional vibration of turbine-generator shafts is developed. With multi-mass lumped model, the model of torsional vibration of turbine-generator shafts is obtained. The system calculates the natural frequencies and the modal shapes of torsional vibration with the transfer matrix method, the response of torsional vibration of shafts with the increment transfer matrix method, such as torsional angle, angular velocity, angular acceleration, cross-section torque, and torsional stress. The response spectrum of torsional vibration can be obtained by fast Fourier transform algorithm Take an example of a 200MW turbine-generator, which is in the condition of non-all-phase operation. The responses of torsional vibration of shafts are calculated and analyzed. The bolt broken reasons of the coupling of inter-pressure rotor and low-pressure rotor and the coupling of generator and exciter are discussed. The results are identical with the data recorded in field. It is proved that the system is good precision, convenient using, friendly interfacing, and visual calculating.
