The Trapezoid Counterweight Method in Dynamic Balance of Symmetric Flexible Rotor


Article Preview

Steam turbine generator unit, water pump and other high speed revolution symmetric flexible rotor were regarded as research objects in this paper. According to variation characteristic of rotor shaft in rigid and flexible working mode, nine-reel high pressure water pump rotor was analyzed. The former four-order intrinsic frequency of flexible rotor was obtained by modal analysis and harmonic response analysis. The methods of reaction force response and unbalance response were been studied after first order and second order resonance region eliminating in different modes of simple harmonic exciting force. Based on above theoretical research results, trapezoid counterweight method was proposed for dynamic balance of flexible rotor. This method solved problem that rigid dynamic balance of low speed rotor was destroyed after first order and second order resonance region counter weight in dynamic balance of flexible rotor. The dynamic balancing techniques of flexible rotor could be improved the qualities of rotor and its relative products by this method, eliminating the vibration of unbalance mass of products radically.
