what is axial shift n what is differential expansion in turbine? how many sensor probes r mounted..

Answer / iftikhar ahmed

axial shift of a steam turbine is the shifting of turbine rotor in the forward and backward direction due to steam thrust on blades of rotor.
Thermal expansion of the shaft would be in an axial direction away from the thrust bearing. The thrust bearing prevents axial movement due to pressure differentials across each stage wheel and the dynamic reactions in the "buckets".
IF a large , high pressure turbine shaft will have a thermal growth of 0.20" the thrust bearing will be set-up 0.20" "short" and when pre-run warmup is completed the shaft will have ("shifted") to be in nearly optimum position for the operating clearances.

A temperature sensor (RTD) connected via a temperature transmitter is adjusted to give an output of 4ma at 60 deg and 20 ma at 600 deg. This output (4-20ma) from the transmitter is connected to an IGBT-inverter to control a high speed (-12,000 to +12,000 RPM) DC motor. And in the inverter it is programmed as, for 4ma the motor speed will be -3,000 RPM and for 20ma the motor speed will be +10,000 RPM. The question is : If the motor speed is +5,500 (RPM), what will be the temperature? (-sign indicates that the motion is in reverse direction).
