Paper Abstract

A modified reciprocal reflection interferometer (MRRI) with passive demodulation scheme (PDS) has been proposed for the implementations of time-division multiplexing optical fiber current senor (OFCS) system. The PDS to simplify the demodulating systems of OFCS has been developed. Descriptions of theory as well as experimental verification are presented. A good linear demodulation result is obtained. The Verdet constant measured experimentally is 4.2 (mu) rad/A*turns, in good agreement with the literatural data. By using the proposed modified reciprocal reflection interferometer, an OFCS is able to become insensitive to environment perturbations. The OFCS's noises that arise from its lead fiber disturbed by vibrating perturbations can be retrained over 20dB compared with the noises of an OFCS using a conventional configuration. It is believed that this work could significantly lead an OFCS not only to the developments of a multiplexing current sensor system, but also to a long-distance remote monitoring of HV-lines because of both the geometric feasibility of fiber optic mechanism of the MRRI and the effectively demodulated circuit reduction of the PDS.
