  • How Does a Thermal Flowmeter Work?

    A thermal flowmeter works by measuring the total mass flow rate of a fluid flowing through a pipe or duct. In a thermal flowmeter’s simplest working configuration, fluid flows past a heated thermal sensor and a temperature sensor. As the molecules of the fluid flow past the heated thermal sensor, heat is lost to the flowing fluid. The thermal sensor cools down while the temperature sensor ...

  • Accuracy in temperature sensor response time estimation for new nuclear reactor designs

    One method for measuring the response time of temperature sensors, the plunge test, verifies that the sensor has a suitable response time in the laboratory before installation. However, plunge test results cannot be extrapolated to the response time in an operating plant because response time is affected by multiple factors such as the ratio of internal heat-transfer resistance to the surface ...

  • Group method of data handling and neural networks applied in temperature sensors monitoring

    In this work a monitoring system is developed based on the Group Method of Data Handling (GMDH) and Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) methodologies. GMDH creates non-linear algebraic models for system characterisation and ANN is a massively parallel distributed processor made up of simple processing units called neurons. The monitoring system was applied to the IEA-R1 research reactor at ...

  • Dissolved oxygen measurements in aquatic environments: The effects of changing temperature and pressure on three sensor technologies

    Dissolved oxygen (DO) is probably the most important parameter related to water quality and biological habitat in aquatic environments. In situ DO sensors are some of the most valuable tools used by scientists and engineers for the evaluation of water quality in aquatic ecosystems. Presently, we cannot accurately measure DO concentrations under variable temperature and pressure conditions. ...

  • Response time testing of temperature sensors using loop current step response method

    The Loop Current Step Response (LCSR) method is used for in–situ response time testing of temperature sensors as installed in an industrial process. This paper presents the theoretical foundation of the LCSR (test theory, LCSR equation and test procedures) and the author's research to validate its use in nuclear power industry applications. The validity of the LCSR method depends on how ...

  • An experimental method to estimate the temperature of individual nanowires

    In this paper, the authors present an effective experimental method to estimate the temperature of individual metal oxide nanowires that can be used to quantify the heating produced in conductometric or other operating conditions. The here-proposed method is based on the analysis of the recovery time of the nanowire's resistance after exposure to a gas pulse (0.5 ppm of NO2 in dry air). It is ...
