Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DETERMINING WATER-CUT OF A FLUID MIXTURE
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE DÉTERMINATION DE PROPORTION D'EAU D'UN MÉLANGE FLUIDE
Abstract:
(EN) Provided in some embodiments are systems and methods for measuring the water content (or water-cut) of a fluid mixture, such as oil production fluids. Provided in some embodiments is a water-cut sensor system (1000) that includes a microwave T-resonator (1118), a ground conductor (1114), and a separator (1140). The T-resonator (1118) including a feed line (1130), and an open shunt stub (1132) conductively coupled to the feed line (1130). The ground conductor (1114) including a bottom ground plane (1120) opposite the T-resonator (1118) and a ground ring (1122) conductively coupled to the bottom ground plane (1120), with the feed line (1130) overlapping at least a portion of the ground ring (11229. The separator (1140) including a dielectric material disposed between the feed line (1130) and the portion of the ground ring (1122) overlapped by the feed line (1130), and the separator (1140) being adapted to electrically isolate the T-resonator (1118) from the ground conductor (1114).
(FR) Selon certains modes de réalisation, l'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés permettant de mesurer la teneur en eau (ou proportion d'eau) d'un mélange fluide, tel que des fluides de production de pétrole. Selon certains modes de réalisation, l'invention concerne un système de capteur (1000) de proportion d'eau qui comprend un résonateur en T à micro-ondes (1118), un conducteur de mise à la terre (1114) et un séparateur (1140). Le résonateur en T (1118) comprend une ligne d'alimentation (1130) et une embase de dérivation ouverte (1132) couplée de manière conductrice à la ligne d'alimentation (1130). Le conducteur de mise à la terre (1114) comprend un plan de masse inférieur (1120) à l'opposé du résonateur en T (1118) et un anneau de mise à la terre (1122) couplé de manière conductrice au plan de masse inférieur (1120), la ligne d'alimentation (1130) chevauchant au moins une partie de l'anneau de mise à la terre (1122). Le séparateur (1140) comprend un matériau diélectrique disposé entre la ligne d'alimentation (1130) et la partie de l'anneau de mise à la terre (1122) chevauchée par la ligne d'alimentation (1130), et le séparateur (1140) est adapté à isoler électriquement le résonateur en T (1118) vis-à-vis du conducteur de mise à la terre (1114).
