Energy

Whether you work with renewable energy technologies, fossil fuel extraction or nuclear power to meet the rising global demand for efficient energy, Luna’s strain measurement and monitoring capabilities can help you better manage your operations and innovate more quickly.

Energy

Overview

Energy is a broad field encompassing a wide range of technologies and operational concerns. The ability to reliably and accurately monitor assets or processes, often in challenging environments, can be critical to the ongoing viability of energy systems. 

Luna’s rugged systems for fiber optic sensing, such as the HYPERION platform, provide simple and reliable measurements for strain, temperature, acceleration and displacement. Large fiber optic strain sensor networks can acquire data from hundreds of measurement locations and be distributed over large areas, making them ideal for structural health monitoring.

High-definition distributed measurements, using the ODiSI sensing platform, are also ideal for general structural testing and thermal analysis in the challenging conditions and environments of the energy industry.

  • Structural health monitoring 
  • Model verification and validation
  • Power plant monitoring
  • Wind turbine blade monitoring
  • Flexible riser monitoring
  • Temperature measurement of power components

Explore Key Solutions below to learn how Luna's systems are delivering reliable monitoring and measurement capabilities in some key applications.

Oil and gas platform
  • Structural Health Monitoring

    Structural health monitoring for production risers, plants, storage vessels and turbines is constantly changing as structures are built in difficult environments, with larger capacity and with new technologies. Real-time, active monitoring of the conditions is critical to the long-term safety of these systems. Rugged fiber optic sensing systems provide continuous, enduring, reliable and accurate measurements of hundreds of optical strain, temperature, acceleration and displacement sensors. For example, fiber optic sensing provides highly accurate multipoint measurements over many kilometers for pipeline systems, providing early warning to pipeline operators about possible ruptures.

  • Structural Test and Model Validation

    Transform structural testing with high-definition fiber optic sensing. High-defintion distributed fiber optic sensing is ideal for measuring strain profiles on and in new materials, including materials characterization, model verification and full scale test. High-speed multipoint fiber optic systems provide proven solutions for dynamic analysis.
