To enhance the performance and reliability of aircraft propulsion systems, an integrated
bearing condition monitoring system is proposed. This intelligent bearing must have advanced health
management capabilities to provide early warning of problems. In most commercial high-temperature
applications, the sensing system is located externally due to lack of appropriate electronic devices
that can function at high temperature. This paper presents the design and implementation of a
self-powered sensing system for use in a high-temperature aircraft environment. The performance of
the thermoelectric generator and energy availability to process acceleration data is shown from our
laboratory tests based on realistic operating conditions.
