This project entitled “Measurement of Water in Oil Pipelines using Capacitance Method” is closely related to oil & gas industry especially from the aspect of safety. To minimize the internal corrosion of oil pipelines due to the presence of water, capacitance method is introduced to detect the amount of water present in oil-water mixture. Being cheap, safe and non- intrusive, this method is suitable for two-phase fluids with low conductivity and large permittivity difference such as oil and water. However, different configurations of electrodes will produce different results in terms of linearity of response. In this project, by utilising ANSYS Maxwell software, two common configurations of electrodes i.e. concave and double rings electrodes are designed to compare their linearity of response towards changes in water content in oil-water mixture.
