Pipeline Manifold Prototype

The video on the left is showing the Pipeline Manifold Prototype

  • A reservoir-pipeline-reservoir maniflod system is developed with relevant accessories, including: flow meters, pressure sensors, pumps and valves.
  • Different functions can be realized via the exiting system: metering, state estimation, regulation and operation.
  • The state-of-art algorithms are developed and implemented on Arduino and Raspberry chips to realize all functionality.
  • Various pipeline architectures and topographies can be generated, such as: mountain and valley, to mimic in-situ pipeline manifolds.
  • This experimental setup is important to demonstrate pipeline leak detection and localization techniques that we developed and for pipeline integrity maintenance.
