Paper Abstract

The increasing need of energy and the increasing share of renewables in electric power generation demands higher flexibility in the operation of conventional power plants. Turbo generators have to face higher stress during operation without consuming additional life time. For the first time in a shop test a new generator design was extensively evaluated by using about 250 fibre optic sensors - mostly new developed - to control temperature, strain, movement and vibration.
