Paper Abstract

Built on a design developed from an advanced mathematical model, a practical fiber optic sensor, which is an analog of the familiar ‘hot-wire’ wind velocity monitor is developed, as an intrinsically-safe sensor device for coal mining monitoring applications. The underpinning optical fiber-based principle used is the shift in the center wavelength of a Fiber Bragg Grating which is cooled by the gas flowing over it and the device sensitivity found was determined to be ~1370pm per unit m/s wind velocity (in the range of 0-0.57 m/s), ~109pm per unit m/s in the range 0.57-2.26 m/s and ~33pm per unit m/s in the range of 2.26-5.66 m/s. In this paper, the factors that influence the device response time, such as the sensor probe surface heat transfer coefficient, wind (gas) velocity and pump power have been investigated in the laboratory. It was found that the greater the surface dissipation factor of the sensor, the shorter the response time, furthermore, the response time was observed to decrease as the wind velocity increased. A method of further shortening sensor response time using wind speed variation slope is proposed.
