  5. Embedded Multiplexed Fiber-Optic Sensing for Turbine Control & ProgNostic Health Management (PHM)

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: 19c

    DOE seeks innovative embedded sensing to enhance control of industrial gas turbines (GTs). Although advanced sensor technology has been demonstrated in development turbine systems, the vast majority of sensors do not meet the requirements for deployment to production turbines. This prevents optimization of control using real-time, in situ sensor data. Combined-cycle plant operation brings clear pl ...
