Paper Abstract

In this work, 3D printing is explored as a solution for fast prototyping of optical fiber sensors with applications in power transformers. Two different sensing structures were evaluated using finite element method (FEM) analysis and were fabricated using 3D printing. The printed structures are composed by acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), a common thermoplastic polymer used in 3D printing. Attaching a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) to each structure, frequency measurements were successfully obtained for values between 20 and 250 Hz.
