Paper Abstract

Instrumentation in Gas Turbines must operate in extremely harsh environments. Electro-optical methods are being increasingly used to measure such variables as displacement, temperature and gas flow and fibre optics are often required to enable sensitive electronic components to be placed remote from the hostile region. This paper reviews applications of fibre optics in Rolls-Royce up to the present. In addition the case for using fibre optic sensors for the measurement of other parameters in future will be presented, along with a discussion of the prospects for fibre optic data transmission on the next generation of digitally controlled engines.
