B4.2 - Novel Fiber-Optical Accelerometer for Monitoring Tasks of Power Generators

M. Villnow, M. Willsch, Th. Bosselmann & B. Schmauss
Due to the increase in energy demand modernizations of electric power plant installations become more and more important. To prevent damages and to verify optimization measures, sensors and monitoring systems are particularly essential. Therefore a novel fiber-optical acceleration sensor has been developed and proposed. The Siemens Fiber Optical Accelerometer (SFOA) is based on the intensity modulation of light. The end surface of a bare multimode fiber is placed towards a tilted mirror. Thereby the fiber...
