Abstract

This paper proposes a technique for measurement of liquid flow using venturi and ultrasonic flow meter(UFM) to have following objectives a) to design a multi-sensor data fusion (MSDF) architecture for using both the sensors, b) improve sensitivity and linearity of venturi and ultrasonic flow meter, and c) detect and diagnosis of faults in sensor if any. Fuzzy logic algorithm is used to fuse outputs of both the sensor and train the fuzzy block to produces output which has an improved characteristics in terms of both sensitivity and linearity. For identification of sensor faults a comparative test algorithm is designed. Once trained proposed technique is tested in real life, results show successful implementation of proposed objectives
