Abstract: We present here some theoretical and experimental results about the application of the time-domain reflectometry (TDR) technique to a once-through steam generator (OTSG) bayonet-type, which is considered here, from a new point of view, as a coaxial transmission line and used as a level monitoring device for its own dynamics. This original approach leads to the design of a new kind of sensor, employable as a general-level measuring system in harsh conditions as well. This sensor may offer some interesting featu…
