In view of the fact that the mature eddy current sensors on the market have a small measuring range and a certain requirement for the measured conductor area, which cannot meet the requirement of TBM disc cutter Wear monitoring, Ansoft Maxwell simulation was used to optimize the coil geometry parameters and circuit structure of eddy current sensor in this study. A special sensor for measuring disc cutter wear was designed, and the feasibility of the design was verified by measuring a 17-inch disc cutter. The results indicate that the linear range of the eddy current sensor is 35 mm under the condition that the measured blade width is 19 mm, which can meet the requirement of disc cutter wear measurement and provide monitoring data for real-time disc cutter wear monitoring system.
