Ozone Sensor for Application in Medium Voltage Switchboard

Letizia De Maria, Giuseppe Rizzi
2009 Journal of Sensors  
The application of a new spectroscopic type fiber sensor for ozone detection in electrical components of Medium Voltage (MV) network is evaluated. The sensor layout is based on the use of an optical retroreflector, to improve the detection sensitivity, and it was especially designed for detecting in situ rapid changes of ozone concentration. Preliminary tests were performed in a typical MV switchboard. Artificial defects simulated predischarge phenomena arising during real operating conditions.
