Title
(EN) METER ELECTRONICS AND FLUID QUANTIFICATION METHOD FOR A FLUID BEING TRANSFERRED
(FR) ELECTRONIQUE DE COMPTEUR ET PROCEDE DE QUANTIFICATION D'UN FLUIDE EN COURS DE TRANSFERT
Abstract
(EN)
Meter electronics (20) for quantifying a fluid being transferred is provided. The meter electronics (20) includes an interface (201) configured to communicate with a flowmeter assembly of a vibratory flowmeter and receive a vibrational response and a processing system (203) coupled to the interface (201). The processing system (203) is configured to measure a mass flow and a density for a predetermined time portion of the fluid transfer, determine if the fluid transfer is non-aerated during the predetermined time portion, if the predetermined time portion is non-aerated then add a mass-density product to an accumulated mass-density product and add the mass flow to an accumulated mass flow, and determine a non-aerated mass-weighted density for the fluid transfer by dividing the accumulated mass-density product by the accumulated mass flow.

L'invention concerne une électronique de compteur (20) servant à quantifier un fluide en cours de transfert. Cette électronique de compteur (20) comprend une interface (201) configurée pour communiquer avec un ensemble débitmètre de débitmètre vibrant et pour recevoir une réponse vibrationnelle, ainsi qu'un système de traitement (203) couplé à l'interface (201). Le système de traitement (203) est configuré pour : mesurer un débit massique et une densité pendant une durée prédéterminée du transfert de fluide ; déterminer si le transfert de fluide est non aéré pendant la durée prédéterminée ; si tel est le cas, ajouter un produit à densité massique à un produit à densité massique accumulée et ajouter le débit massique à un débit massique accumulé ; et déterminer une densité pondérée en masse non aérée pour le transfert de fluide, par division du produit à densité massique accumulée par le débit massique accumulé.
