Paper Abstract

CITEQ is a small R&D company owned by Hydro-Quebec, a leading designer and operator of large-scale power transmission systems, and ABB, removed for its expertise in the design and manufacture of power transmission equipment and systems. CITEQ undertook some applied research efforts in photonic systems. Naturally, the dielectric nature of photonic systems is a great advantage for the application of photonic systems in the electrical world. Among CITEQ's projects, the fiber optic current sensor for high-voltage networks and the interferometric fiber optic gyroscope for civil structure inspection are presented. The new possibilities of photonic systems in power systems are explain
