Title (EN) WIRELESS POWER TRANSFER AND SENSING FOR MONITORING PIPELINES
(FR) DÉTECTION ET TRANSFERT D'ÉNERGIE SANS FIL POUR LA SURVEILLANCE DE PIPELINES
Abstract:
(EN) A system for use in wirelessly monitoring a pipeline such as a natural gas pipe. The system includes a locator configured to wirelessly transmit power and a subsoil sensor marker located adjacent the pipe and configured to wirelessly communicate with the locator. The sensor marker includes a microcontroller, a memory module, a sensor configured to sense the presence of a gas, and a power module. The power module is configured to harvest a sufficient amount of the power wirelessly transmitted from the locator in order to operate the microcontroller to take a measurement via the sensor, save the measurement in the memory module, and wirelessly transmit the measurement to the locator.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système destiné à être utilisé dans la surveillance sans fil d'un pipeline tel qu'un tuyau de gaz naturel. Le système comprend un localisateur configuré pour transmettre sans fil de l'énergie et un marqueur de capteur de sous-sol situé à proximité du tuyau et configuré pour communiquer sans fil avec le localisateur. Le marqueur de capteur comprend un microcontrôleur, un module de mémoire, un capteur configuré pour détecter la présence d'un gaz, et un module de puissance. Le module de puissance est configuré pour collecter une quantité suffisante de la puissance transmise sans fil par le localisateur afin de faire fonctionner le microcontrôleur pour effectuer une mesure par l'intermédiaire du capteur, sauvegarder la mesure dans le module de mémoire, et transmettre sans fil la mesure au localisateur.
