Paper Abstract

A fibre Bragg grating sensor system has been installed in a horizontal axis wind turbine and was successfully tested for already more than one year. We report the requirements, system design and realisation of the sensor system for continuous on-line load monitoring of the rotor blades, and provide examples of strain measurement results.
