Abstract:

We present progress of research and design in the area of liquid sensors for condition-based maintenance where accurate portable devices for monitoring hydraulic and lubricating fluids are desired. Issues addressed include dielectric modeling, capacitive calculations a novel electrogravity mechanism, and MEMS microelectromechanical systems applications. Measurements of capacitance, of frequency response, of oxidation effects, and of breakdown voltages, all as a function of contaminant concentration, have been carried out.
