D6.1 - Comparison of spatially extended fiber-optic temperature measurement systems for energy applications

M. Villnow, J. Kaiser & T. Bosselmann
In this paper different spatially extended fiber-optic temperature measurement systems are analyzed and compared in terms of spatial and temporal resolution, accuracy and response time, cross sensitivity and calibration. The measurement systems are tested particularly with regard to the application in electric power stations. These installations like power generators, large drives, transformers, power transmission lines and gas turbines require a distribution of measurement points of some centimeters up to tens of meters. Whenever the sensor...
