Abstract

Previously conversion equations of influence coefficients between multi-plane and static(in-phase)-couple(180 degrees out-of-phase) methods have been established. Sometimes one may have influence coefficients due to weight from one end only, but not both ends, plus those due to static or couple pair weight only but not both pairs. It has been found now that obtaining or knowing half of influence coefficients in the first method, plus half of those in the second method, can yield the other half of influence coefficients in both methods. In the other words, all influence coefficients in different formats can be obtained without a further trial run once one has half of influence coefficients in both methods. The above findings and conversion equations have been obtained analytically and verified by experimental results. A real application example is presented to demonstrate its efficiency in dealing with balancing tasks. The corresponding spreadsheets that can easily convert influence coefficients between different formats have been developed and used in real cases. Up to this point, all possible conversion equations of influence coefficients in different formats have been successfully discovered.
