Design and Implementation of Passive Dynamic Vibration Absorber for Vibration control of rotating mass unbalanced Air Blower

  • ICIPPSD Conference


Frequently it is found in the industry that unbalances of the rotating components generate vibration due to centrifugal force. Here an attempt has been made to reduce vibrations caused by unbalance in the impeller of the Air Blower. The Dynamic Vibration Absorber (DVA) device is designed in such a way that optimal tuning damping factor and mass ratio were found as same as that obtained by using higher order of perturbation method. The designed DVA brings Vrms values within the limit set by ISO 10816-3 for Unlimited Long-Term Operation Allowable.  More than 50% appreciable vibration reduction was measured in radial horizontal and vertical direction both at the motor drive and non-drive end.
