The results of experimental studies of supersonic steam flow downstream the flat turbine nozzle blade cascade has been considered. The investigations were carried out in a broad range of steam initial conditions (superheated, dry saturated) and isentropic Mach (M1t) number downstream the object of study. The schlieren method was used to obtain the visual information about shock waves structure. The flow parameters oscillations were measured by pressure transducers situated at different locations downstream the object of study.

It is shown that the occurrence of condensing shock at conditions of superheated steam upstream the nozzle blade cascade leads to the sufficient unsteadiness of shock waves system. This is due to the complex relationship between the boundary layer and a shock wave system. With changing of initial steam conditions the rearrangement of static pressure frequency spectra is observed.
