Abstract

In this paper a method to track the rotating force vector set up within the air-gap of radial flux rotating electrical machines using fibre Bragg gratings is reported. The proposed technique offers the potential for simultaneous rotor speed and position monitoring. This specific sensor design, together with other FBG-based multi-parameter measurements, is aimed to create an all-optical sensor solution for electrical machines, reducing the component count of existing systems and addressing noise issues traditionally associated with electrical sensors used. In this work, an optical fibre sensor system has been successfully integrated into an off-the-shelf four-pole 11kW induction motor.
