Abstract
The influence of the tip clearance on the performance of rotating turbo machinery is well known. The objective of this work was to measure this parameter using a non-contact sensor with a precision of 30 μm in a real turbine. An optical sensor whose main component is a bundle of optical fibers was selected to carry out the measurements. Three different configurations of the sensor have been tested by taking measurements on two distinct turbines. Tip-clearance measurements are achieved with the desired precision, providing the opportunity to develop applications related to structural health monitoring or active clearance-control systems.
