Abstract

Electrical Tomography System has gained much attention these recent years as the ultimate solution of multiphase flow analysis and multiphase level analysis. It offers a Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) method that produces real-time images of cross-sectional area of an enclosed space. This provides the solution to problems involving non-conductive processes where hydrocarbon-based environment are of interest. Problems ranges from variation in the velocity profile, uneven phase distribution and flow characterization and by analyzing the multiphase flow patterns and multiphase level patterns, an accurate model of the fluid transportation could be attained. Distribution profile of the different phases are present in the multiphase transportation system can be determined across the cross sectional area during the transportation process at varying velocity and pressure. The chosen Electrical Tomography System to be developed in the project is the Electrical Capacitance Tomography System (ECT) as it has no hazardous radiation emission, low cost, able to be used in high temperature and pressure environment and its high accuracy [13]. The system is also very advantageous to be used in the measurements involving non-conducting processes and it have been proven to be very stable and accurate [13, 14]. The project will focus on the development of ECT system with some additional improvement made based on the current development of the technology. The main focus of the project is to develop a Data Acquisition System for UTP’s own Electrical Capacitance System. Major focus will be given in increasing the efficiency of the Data Acquisition System by having to implement several techniques that suppress the common problems faced by the conventional Electrical Capacitance Tomography. Associated issues include the existence of stray capacitances, switching problems and speed of the system. The research will first proceeds with a comparison profile of all prior conventional Data Acquisition System developed for Electrical Capacitance Tomography and then a newer Data Acquisition System layout have been designed based on prior systems. Several test measurements involving multiphase flow analysis will be done in order to justify the accuracy and reliability of the ECT system developed. Finally, a profile of the accuracy and the reliability of the ECT system developed will be tabulated to be compared with other current developments of the system.
