Abstract

Computer models can provide the basis for real-time monitoring and control of fluid flow in pipelines. Problems of fluid flow in pipelines are mathematically represented by a non-linear system of coupled partial differential equations. In this paper, several numerical techniques are evaluated with respect to their suitability for the purpose of real-time monitoring of fluid flow in pipelines. The proposed techniques are evaluated in terms of the L-1, the L-2, and the L-infinity error norms. Moreover, the developed simulators will be compared in terms of their speed of response and settling time which are essential factors for an effective real-time monitoring scheme. Finally, the selected simulation scheme is further tested under assumed pipeline leak conditions. Copyright (C) 2004 John Wiley Sons, Ltd.
