This paper discusses the concept, design and testing of a fiber optic viewing system that records flame images, wavelength spectra and flicker frequencies from inside an operating gas turbine combustor. The image, wavelength spectrum and flicker frequencies give a new type of signature of the combustor that can be related to certain engine operating conditions and malfunctions. Flame data along with other engine and sensor data taken over long periods of time and under different engine… CONTINUE READING
