Observer Tools for Pipeline Monitoring

  • 887 Accesses

Part of the Applied Condition Monitoring book series (ACM,volume 7)

Abstract

This chapter discusses how the problem of fault monitoring in pipelines can be addressed by state observer tools. In short, the approach relies on a dynamical modeling of water flow dynamics in the pipeline subject to fault effects, and on this basis fault parameters are directly estimated by observer techniques. Motivated by typical pipeline models and faults, possible observer tools are recalled and illustrated with some application examples.
