Rotor balancing is a requirement for the smooth operation of high-speed rotating machinery. In field balancing, minimization of the residual vibrations at important locations/speeds under practical constraints is usually a challenging task. In this paper, the generalized minmax coefficient influence method is formulated as an optimization problem with flexible objective functions and constraints. The optimization problem is cast in a Linear Matrix Inequality (LMI) form and a balancing code is developed to solve it. Two balancing examples are run to verify the efficiency and flexibility of the proposed method. Over the existing methods, current method is more flexible for the various requirements encountered in field balancing and can be solved accurate with current mathematical software.
