The hydraulic and structural vibration sources of pumping station are investigated in current research. Based on a vertical shaft tubular pumping station project in an eastern province of China, a three-dimensional fluid-solid coupling model of the pumping station is established, including the fluid in the flow channel, concrete structure, and hydraulic machinery. Two-way fluid-structure interaction (FSI) method is used to calculate the coupled vibration responses of the pumping station. Based on the FSI simulation results, the hydraulic and structural vibration sources of the pumping station are explored from the frequency perspective based on the Fourier transform theory and the vibration energy transmission perspective based on the time-delayed transfer entropy method. Research results show that the fluid pulsation generated by the rotation of the impeller is the main hydraulic vibration source, and the rotating impeller is the main structural vibration source that causes the vibration of the unit and the concrete structure. This research could provide a scientific basis for structural vibration control, vibration reduction, and isolation design of the pumping station.
