For industrial applications (e.g. in power plants or chemical plants) previous projects already focussed on the development of data processing algorithms that convert the huge data sets into user friendly information, i.e. average void fraction and flow pattern. Hence, plant operators can now benefit from advanced process monitoring and operate their processes more efficiently.
The current developments focus on an enhanced system that includes online reference measurements in order to compensate drifts, which may result from changes of fluid properties when dealing with dynamic operation modes of the process. For this purpose, an existing concept should be converted into a final design, constructed and finally tested within the frame of an internship.
