Abstract

A Turbine is a rotary engine that converts the energy from a fluid to useful work. The turbines in general carry parts as a shaft, moving Blades, a stationary (Guide) blades and a casing. Balancing is the most important operation to be carried out for any rotating element (rotor) for its smooth function and long reliable functioning. Any cause of unbalance would cause vibration and stresses in the rotor itself and to its supporting structure. The unbalance may cause the other parts of the machine to vibrate and also other adjacent machines may vibrate in resonance to this vibration, hence causing an insecure and disturbing working environment. Balancing of the rotor is, therefore, necessary to increase the quality of product, minimize the vibrations, noises, operator annoyance and fatigue, structural stresses and mainly to increase the bearing life and to minimize the power losses. The paper involves the dynamic balancing of the RINL rotor, where in vector diagrams have been drawn to calculate the amount of balancing mass to be added. The graphical and bar chart of each unbalance run have been plotted and analyzed.
