Subsynchronous vibration of high-pressure steam turbine is one of the difficult problems to improve the reliability of power plant. Extensive work has been done to prevent the low frequency vibration of high-capacity steam turbine and most of the problems were practically solved. In the future, we must build up theoretical approach to design a new turbine operating under the steam condition of high-temperature and high-pressure. To design such an advanced steam turbine, it is necessary to solve the effect of partial admission on control stage of the steam turbine. This paper describes the experimental results from the scale model of the steam turbine and theoretical analysis of Alford force considered partial admission condition to solve the problem. (1) Subsynchronous vibration was reproduced in the scale model test. (2) Partial admission gave larger destabilizing force compared with full admission condition for same total flow rate. (3) Initial position of shaft center to the phase of admission arc on the partial admission had some effect on the stability of the rotor system. (4) Theoretical analysis of destabilizing force considered partial admission condition gave qualitative description of the experimental results from the scale model.
