[Webinar] Using DAS for the detection and localization of electrical cable faults.

Watch our exciting on-demand webinar in collaboration with Engie Laborelec. During this informative session, you will have the opportunity to delve into the world of electrical cable fault detection and localization using a Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) device coupled with fiber optic technology.



Simon De Rijcke – Marlinks
Project Lead

Simon graduated with a Master of Science from the university of Leuven as an electrical engineer in 2009. He continued his academical career and obtained a PhD in 2014 on grid integration of wind farms, focusing on the optimal use of kinetic energy in wind turbines to control the power output. From 2014 to 2020, he worked for Nordex-Acciona, a wind turbine OEM and ENGIE Laborelec. Simon has gained substantial experience in the electrical design of turbines, farms, and grids. He co-designed and developed the next generation of turbines and has written several control algorithms running on hundreds of turbines in the field. He has written multiple academic articles in journals and conference proceedings and holds several patents. At present, he fulfills the role of project lead at Marlinks, developing and applying DTS and DAS techniques to monitor submarine cables.

Koen De Bauw – Engie Laborelec
Chief Technologist – Condition Monitoring & Asset Reliability

Koen De Bauw is a global expert in vibration analysis and condition monitoring of industrial assets, with over 30 years of experience at ENGIE Laborelec, a leading research center for electrical power technology. He started working as as a field engineer on vibration analysis and a test engineer on electrical protections. Between 1999 and 2014 he managed a team working on services and contract research in structural dynamics and condition monitoring and also regularly supported root cause analyses of damages in rotating machinery . Since 2014 he holds a position of Chief Technologist and applies his multidisciplinary experience in coordinating research projects and services in renewable energy, especially for onshore and offshore wind. Koen has contributed at several conferences as a speaker or author on his field experience with condition monitoring and rotor dynamic analysis.
