DIVISION OF DIAGNOSTICS AND AUTOMATICS OF TURBOMACHINERY

The Division of Diagnostics and Automatics of Turbomachinery employs 5 staff members, including 3 academic teachers:

- Prof. Zbigniew Kozanecki, DSc, PhD  -  Head of Division

- Jakub Łagodziński, PhD

 - Eliza Tkacz, PhD

2 technical staff members:

- Sylwester Więckowski, MSc

- Andrzej Kaczmarek, BSc

 

The Division of Diagnostics and Automatics of Turbomachinery conducts the following investigations:

1. Theoretical and experimental investigations of nonconventional bearing systems in turbomachines, namely:

-  dynamic gas bearings, also for machines based on MEMS technology,

-  hydrodynamic bearings with special geometry,

-  active magnetic bearings;

2. Theoretical and experimental investigations of sealings for turbomachinery;

3. Design, theoretical and experimental investigations of mechatronic systems – automation and control of machines and devices;

4. Theoretical analyses, vibration diagnostics and designing dynamics of rotating turbomachines with a complex analysis of their compliance with standards in force;

5. Vibration diagnostics of machines according to the model.

The plans of development in the Division of Diagnostics and Automatics of Turbomachinery are related to continuation of  the investigations in the above-mentioned fields and with their expansion, especially as far as verification in situ is concerned. It is connected with establishment of cooperation with industrial partners that will invest in new technologies proposed and tested in laboratories. The Division conducts numerous projects for important foreign cooperators, for instance, for  ONERA.

The Division is equipped with specialist apparatus and test stands. The reliability of tests conducted has built mutual confidence in industrial partners so far, which brings financial profits apart from the scientific impact for the Institute.

The members of the Division have authored numerous foreign and home publications, in which outcomes of scientific projects and cooperation with industry are widely disseminated.

As a result of each project conducted, a new test stand that represents new technologies in the fields of machine design and structure is built. These test stands are used for teaching purposes as well – for students and engineers who come for their post-diploma trainings and courses as well as by researchers of the Division and PhD students.
