Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR MONITORING PRESSURE TRANSIENTS AND PIPE BURSTS
Abstract:
Systems and methods for monitoring pressure transients and pipe bursts in a pipeline network are provided. The system can include a pressure sensor for measuring pressure in a pipe and generating a pressure signal, and a hydrophone for detecting a change of the pressure and generating a hydrophone signal. The system can include a high pass filter that can filter a portion of the hydrophone signal corresponding to a particular frequency. The system can include a comparator that generates an interrupt signal when the hydrophone signal satisfies a threshold value. The system can include a microcontroller which stays in a sleep mode until receiving the interrupt signal. The microcontroller can switch on the pressure sensor to record the pressure signal generated by the pressure sensor after being woken up.
