Sensors Towards Advanced Monitoring and Control of Gas Turbine Engines

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Description

    Funded under FP7-TRANSPORT.

    Reducing the amount of instrument cabling on turbine engines is key to more efficient testing, and will enable reduced wiring weight and complexity on production engines in the future.

    It is anticipated that wireless capability for Engine Health Monitoring (EHM) sensors could significantly reduce the cost and complexity of retrofitting improved EHM capabilities to existing engines in service, as well as providing capability for future product prognostic and diagnostic health management systems. Enablers for fully wireless, less-wired and mixed networked sensors will be developed.
