The causative phenomena of subsynchronous vibration, or re-excitation of the critical speed of a rotor, are discussed. Two rotor systems designed to control this type of vibration are presented. One system employs tuned, oil film damper bearings while the other features a stiffened rotor geometry. Stability thresholds of each design are compared based on high-pressure closed loop testing.
