Abstract

The effect of optical fiber attenuation differences (AD) induced temperature error of Raman distributed temperature sensor (RDTS) is analyzed using the temperature demodulation algorithm. First of all, a novel method to address the effects caused by the AD between Stokes and anti-Stokes light is proposed. Furthermore, the temperature measurement error caused by additional AD of fiber temperature is also reduced by using a formula obtained by experimental data. The experimental results demonstrate that the RDTS system can measure different temperature zones more accurately.
