Abstract
We present the quasi-distributed temperature measurement results in a selective catalytic reduction unit of a power plant by using a frequency-division-multiplexing optical fiber measurement system with eight intrinsic Fabry-Perot interferometric fiber sensors along a single fiber. The sensor was constructed by splicing a section of multimode fiber between single mode fibers. A high resolution swept laser interrogator was used to measure the spectrogram of the reflected light from the sensors, which contains multiple frequency components in wave number domain corresponding to sensors with different cavity lengths. The temperatures were measured by estimating the optical path length of each Fabry-Perot interferometer. Field test results show that the proposed technology can potentially be used in applications of multi-point high temperature sensing.
