The course will give students improved understanding on equipment and measurements used in the oil and gas industry for monitoring / controlling, flow, pressure, temperature, fluid composition, etc., through theory and practice. Through the project part of the course the students should be able to design, program and run their own control system for given purpose.
Fluid and flow metering techniques:
Instrumentation and requirements
Physical principles of sensing elements
Challenges of fluid and flow metering
Signal analysis and noise filtering
Advanced analysis and advanced laboratory instrumentation
Data acquisition systems (DAQ) and process control:
PC - Instrument signal communication
Use of Matlab for data analysis
Use of PASCO Scientific Products for DAQ and control
Theory and practice:
Laboratory setup of selected applications.
(Visit to industry, instrument manufactures and process plants)
Laboratory exercises with lab reports are compulsory. Due to limited lab capacity, the number of applicants admitted to the course is limited to 10 students. If the number of applicants for the course exceeds 10, then the 10 most qualified students will be selected based on grades and general qualifications.
