Project Description

The University of Central Florida will develop an accurate and robust wireless passive high-temperature sensor for in situ measurement of strains inside turbine engines in coal-based power generation systems.

Project Benefits

This project will develop wireless passive ceramic strain sensors for turbine engine applications. On-line monitoring can help predict the failure of turbine engine parts by providing useful information on their condition. The sensors can also help reduce unnecessary out-of-service examination and replacement of engine parts. The expected impact of this technology is lower operating costs through more accurate measurement of the conditions inside a gasifier or boiler to better control their operation.
