The balancing operation consists in improving the distribution of the rotor masses so that the free centrifugal forces around the rotor axis, imposed by the manufacturer, do not exceed the tolerances allowed by the standards. In this paper we propose algorithms for the distribution of the turbine blades from data from an electronic scale which allows to measure the static moment of the blades, these algorithms aim to find the correction weight and the angle of position of the correction mass, we also propose a simulation of the distribution of the blades of a turbine to get an idea on the assembly. This operation is necessary in the case of a repair of the rotors or in the assembly of the new flexible rotors. Using a MATLAB calculation code.
