As the name of our center already suggests, the common denominator of our activities is a dynamic flow / flow control environment.
Some projects and/or subjects FCoE is/was involved with:
Metrology and flow measurement
- Development of new (liquid) flow meters
- Product improvement (provers)
- Process control (integrated DCS/SCADA systems, pump drives)
- Testing flow related equipment/units
- Optimization of propulsion
- Dynamic ship balancing
Data, diagnostics and communication
- Logging and analysis of process data
- FCoE will make available data sets of the XCaliber installation for research
- Logging and analysis of performance data / sensoring and diagnostics,
- e.g. in-line flow meters, P- and T sensors, pumps and valves.
- New communication Field -> Control
