Several papers on online condition monitoring based on fibre optic temperature sensing were presented. In more papers DTS was mentioned as essential part of the high voltage cable project discussed. This is an example from the city of Xiamen, China:

This paper introduces the application results of Distributed Fibre Optic Temperature Monitoring System (DTS) used in Xiamen Power utility for 220 kV power cable operation monitoring. In November 2007, one cross bonding box earthing problem caused by water leakage in a cable joint manhole was detected. In terms of the deployed DTS system this problem was resolved in time, successfully preventing the potentially serious large-scale cable faults. Thus to demonstrate the theory of DTS system for larger applications, this paper presents the reliability, sensitivity and usage of DTS in relation to the temperature monitoring.
