OFDR Distributed Temperature and Strain Measurements with Optical Fibre Sensing Cables: Application to Drain Pipeline Monitoring in a Nuclear Power Plant

Abstract : This study deals with the testing of innovative Optical Fibre Sensing (OFS) cables deployed on ducts, with the aim to perform distributed temperature and strain measurements. Such cables contain several optical fibres devoted to be interrogated by Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR). The methodology has first been developed and qualified in laboratory. Then, real tests have been performed on a Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) drain system to demonstrate the industrial feasibility of such technology. To do so, two small diameter sensing cables, compatible with distributed temperature and strain measurements, have been qualified and afterwards installed along a sodium drain line at Superph \ₙix NPP (liquid sodium coolant fast breeder reactor in current dismantling). Measurements have been performed during the preheating operation. Recorded data were post-processed according to a semi-empirical model taking into account temperature dependence and thermo-mechanical sensing cable behaviour. Optical fibre distributed temperature measurements were then successfully compared to thermocouple reference measurements, whereas optical sensing cable data were processed to provide distributed strain, then distributed curvature radius, which will enable, after numerical integration, to compute distributed displacement data. The goal is to assess the use of OFS for monitoring both temperature and mechanical strain distribution along a pipe under heat stress.
