Abstract

In this paper we give details of the design and laboratory evaluation of the pre-prototype hybrid fiber Bragg grating piezoelectric voltage sensor for a remotely interrogated condition monitoring system, such as the measurement system used for monitoring of electrical submersible pump (ESP) motors. The proposed sensor design is directed towards the upper voltage rating (5 kV) of ESP motors.
