Distributed Temperature Sensing Systems (DTS) are optoelectronic devices which measure temperatures by means of optical fibers functioning as linear sensors. Temperatures are recorded along the optical sensor cable, thus mapping it as a continuous profile and not at points. The temperature profiles can be monitored at surface in real time, minimizing the need for production logs, preventing deferred production losses, decreasing well interventions, and reducing operating costs.
Distributed temperature sensing (DTS) monitoring provides continuous temperature status of high-voltage power cables, detecting hot spots along their entire length. An alarm is triggered when critical temperature limits are exceeded and cables are at risk. It leads to achieve high accuracy of temperature determination over great distances. DTS systems can detect temperature changes less than 0.01°C and pinpoint the exact location of a thermal event within the range of one meter.
Its quite ideal for use in hazardous zones and environments, where safety is of critical importance. Since optical fibers are not susceptible to electromagnetic interference they are ideal for use in power stations and for monitoring of distribution lines. Furthermore, it helps operators in optimizing transmission and distribution networks by reducing operational costs and capital. Over the last decade, the distributed temperature sensing systems market has reported a steady growth.
