Paper Abstract

Allison Gas Turbine Division of General Motors Corporation is developing fiber optic based turbine engine control systems and has identified key applications to determine fiber optic sensor requirements. Measured parameters, operating ranges, accuracy requirements, environmental constraints, and speed of response are identified and presented for 3 categories of engine/applications, both for today and tomorrow. A review is presented of fiber optic temperature, speed, pressure, position, and flow sensor types and their potential to meet these critical requirements on turbine engines. Key Allison development and test efforts are highlighted.
