A Contactless Electromagnetic Coupling Resonance-Based Volume Fraction Detection Technique for Gas-Liquid Flow
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 77, 41-50, 2019
Abstract
To obtain the volume fraction of a gas-liquid two-phase flow, a contactless electromagnetic coupling resonance based volume fraction detection (CECR-VFD) technique is proposed. By mathematical calculation and numerical simulation, it is found that the CECR-VFD method is a better alternative than the conventional electromagnetic induction based method. The distance between the excitation coil and receiving coil is firstly determined. Then the effect of the pipe length is investigated. Additionally, the relationship between the output voltage across the receiving coil and the volume fraction is studied for stratified flow and annular flow. Experiments have been carried out for validation, and the results indicate that the output voltage can be used to predict the volume fraction of a two-phase flow.
