Title
(EN) METHOD FOR DETERMINING AND MONITORING THE GAS CONSUMPTION IN A GAS NETWORK UNDER PRESSURE OR UNDER VACUUM AND GAS NETWORK
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE DÉTERMINATION ET DE SURVEILLANCE DE LA CONSOMMATION DE GAZ DANS UN RÉSEAU DE GAZ SOUS PRESSION OU SOUS VIDE ET RÉSEAU DE GAZ
Abstract
(EN)
Method for determining gas consumption in a gas network comprising: - sources (6); - consumers (7); - sensors (9a, 9b, 9c), wherein these sensors comprise at least a number of flow sensors (9a) which measure the flow (q') of the gas taken by the consumers (7); characterized in that the method comprises the following steps: a start-up phase (13), during which the aforementioned sensors (9a, 9b, 9c, 9d) are calibrated before use; an operational phase (16), in which the flow (q') and/or gas volume (V ) consumed by each consumer (7), is calculated using a cumulative algorithm and a predefined, adjustable time horizon (T); an output phase (17), in which the calculated or determined flow (q') and/or gas volume (V ) consumed by each consumer (7) is displayed.
(FR)
L’invention concerne un procédé de détermination de la consommation de gaz dans un réseau de gaz comprenant : - des sources (6); - des consommateurs (7); - des capteurs (9a, 9b, 9c), lesdits capteurs comprenant au moins un certain nombre de capteurs d'écoulement (9a) qui mesurent l'écoulement (q*) du gaz prélevé par les consommateurs (7); caractérisé en ce que le procédé comprend les étapes suivantes : une phase de démarrage (13), au cours de laquelle les capteurs mentionnés ci-dessus (9a, 9b, 9c, 9d) sont étalonnées avant utilisation ; une phase opérationnelle (16), dans laquelle le débit (q') et/ou le volume de gaz (V) consommé par chaque consommateur (7), est/sont calculé(s) à l'aide d'un algorithme cumulatif et d'un horizon temporel réglable prédéfini (T); une phase de sortie (17), dans laquelle le débit calculé ou déterminé (q') et/ou le volume de gaz (V ) consommé par chaque consommateur (7) est/sont affiché(s).
