I dont understand what is a 'balance transformation' or 'reverse transformation'?

I suspect that "reverse transformation" means "reversible process." Maybe "balanced transformation" means "quasistatic process"?

If I am understanding your question (which I may not be)...You can have a non-reversible process but still must have a conservation of energy. The quality of the balance depends on one's ability to account for the losses in an irreversible system.
