The designers of rotor shafts and blades for a traditional turbine-generator set typically employed their own models and process by neglecting the coupled torsional effect. The torsional coupled umbrella mode of recent longer blades systems designed for higher output and efficiency tends to have nearly doubled the frequency of electric disturbance (i.e., 100 or 120 Hz). In order to precisely estimate the rotor-blade coupled vibration of rotating shafts, the analysis must include a process to identify the parameters of a mathematical model by using a real model. In this paper we propose the use of a unique quasi-modal technique based on a concept similar to that of the modal synthesis method, but which represents a unique method to provide a visually reduced model. An equivalent mass-spring system is produced for uncoupled umbrella mode and modal parameters are measured in an actual turbine rotor system. These parameters are used to estimate the rotor-blade coupled torsional frequencies of a 700-MW turbine-generator set, with the accuracy of estimation being verified through field testing.
