Identification of Rotor Unbalance as Inverse Problem of Measurement


In this paper, the problem of identification of the characteristics of the rotor unbalance on two supports is investigated as the inverse problem of measurement. The vibration of rotor supports in two mutually perpendicular directions used as the initial information. The inverse problem is considered, taking into account the error of the mathematical description of rotor-bearings system. To obtain estimates of real unbalance characteristics, the hypothesis as to the exact solutions is applied. The method of Tikhonov regularization is used to obtain stable results. Test calculations are given to illustrate the proposed approach.
