Abstract:

Not Available It is difficult to measure pressures and temperatures on turbomachinery during engine development because of the difficulty of transmitting information from a rotating piece of equipment to a stationary recording station. The traditional method for measurements on rotating machinery is with a slip-ring, which has an expensive up-front cost as well as a short life, lasting as little as 25 hours of testing. We propose to develop a new technology for wireless transmission of pressure signals using a low power data link. Sending pressure or temperature signals through these data links would have a range of 2 meters, which should be sufficient to cover the distances necessary for turbine engines.
