Application of Fluidic Sensors for Measurement of Turbine Inlet Temperature 720158
Maximum temperature is a critical parameter in the control of any thermodynamic cycle. Fast and precise temperature control means improved specific fuel consumption and increased engine life by making it possible to maintain the engine at or near its maximum temperature, yet not exceeding it. The fluidic temperature sensor is the first direct measuring sensor that offers both long life and fast response. It is applicable to mass production techniques and is ideally suited to vehicular and commercial gas turbine usage, as well as other types of heat engines.
