Vibration related outages due to an unbalance in rotating equipment have been a historic problem in the power generation industry and have resulted in increased plant operating costs. Until recently, the only means for solving these vibration problems was to perform manual balancing on the rotating equipment. Active balancing systems have been used in other industrial processing applications, on ID/FD fans, compressors, and turbines, for many years. Further developments in active balancing capabilities have positioned these systems to cover the broad range of applications in the power generation industry today.
