Improved performance and reduced emissions of land based gas turbines are being enabled by enhanced instrumentation. Oxsensis sensors are currently being used to simultaneous measure the pressure and temperature inside the combustor of both research and commercial gas turbines.
The temperature limitations of legacy electrical sensors leads to compromises in installation, lifetime, and performance. Working with the world’s leading gas turbine OEMs, Oxsensis has pioneered high bandwidth optical sensors that simultaneously measure pressure and temperature at the combustor wall, offering new system management capabilities.
Leading indicators of generator degradation include bearing and end winding vibration. The high temperature, high EMI environment within ac generators is accessible using Oxsensis optical sensor systems, which provide enhanced health monitoring for these critical components. The capability is readily integrated with Oxsensis gas turbine sensor systems for a complete solution.Generator Instrumentation
