Abstract
A temperature independent high sensitive pressure sensing system using fiber Bragg grating (FBG) and ‘C’ shaped Bourdon tube (CBT) is demonstrated. The sensor is configured by firmly fixing the FBG (FBG1) between free and fixed ends of the CBT. Additional FBG (FBG2) in line to the FBG1 is introduced which is shielded from the external pressure, tend to measure only the ambient temperature fluctuations. The CBT has an elliptical cross section where its free end is sealed and the fixed end is open for subjecting the liquid or gas pressure to be measured. With the application of pressure, the free end of CBT tends to straighten out results in an axial strain in FBG1 causes red shift in Bragg wavelength. The pressure can be determined by measuring the shift of the Bragg wavelength. The experimental pressure sensitivity is found to be 66.9 pm/psi over a range of 0 to 100 psi. The test results show that the Bragg wavelength shift is linear corresponds to change in applied pressure and well agreed with the simulated results. This simple and high sensitive design is capable of measuring static/dynamic pressure and temperature simultaneously which suits for industrial applications.
