Welcome to the Pipeline Integrity Center
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.
