The work proposes instrumentation for measuring local temperatures on the surface and in the interior of a rotor. The applied design incorporates up to 12 simultaneous local temperature measurements on arbitrary locations in the rotor. Thus, a realistic 3D thermal distribution picture of the rotor can be obtained. The system characterizes with accuracy of α1.5 °C, noise immunity under inverter operation, continuous measuring durations of up to 30h and mechanical rigidity for up to 6000 rpm… CONTINUE READING
