Abstract

This contribution addresses the electrochemical voltage

drift of electromagnetic flow meters. We will extend the

conventional discrete time alternating field method to continuous

operation. A Kalman filter, based on a state space model of the

sensor, was developed to separate the flow-proportional signal

from the noisy voltage drift of the electrodes. The new algorithm

allows to process flow information rarely used today, i.e., the

electrode voltage during times of stable magnetic field. Thereby

a lower energy consumption and an increased accuracy can

be achieved. Compared to conventional signal processing, the

performance of the new method is far more independent of

the transient behavior of the actual flow. Measurements show

a comparable accuracy, but with a significantly reduced energy

demand. Off-line signal processing let expect a theoretical power

reduction factor around 150.
