Abstract
In recent years hydro power stations were rebuilt to more efficient pumped storage power stations. This changed the loading conditions and new monitoring concepts are required. We developed a FBG based automatic monitoring system for the simultaneous measurement of concrete segment joints. With a fibre optic testing facility sensor nonlinearity and hysteresis effects were investigated. Using selected sensors the requested accuracy of 0.02 mm for deformations up to 3 mm can be achieved. Several sensors were installed in a hydro power dam. First results show an increased number of load cycles and smaller movements for the dam in pumping mode.
