What should be the possible reasons of vacuum drop of turbine?

In the low pressure side of a steam turbine, the vacuum is maintained by the condensation of steam in the condenser. At high loads, the condenser may not satisify the demand, allowing steam to remain gaseous for a longer period of time. This can cause pressure to rise.
