Networked energy measurement and control in a natural gas grid
2006 (English)Report (Other academic)
The application of sensor network technology to gas metering and control in a gas distribution grid is discussed. Introduced by a brief overview of sensor network and sensor fusion ideas two different scenarios for applying networked sensors to gas metering and control are discussed. Possibilities for improved gas metering accuracy and improved customer communication are discussed. Such improvements will possibly result in new customer services that can be offered by the gas supplier and better energy efficiency. Based on this it is proposed a demonstration project. Here sensor networking applied to gas metering, the resulting services and related ideas will be tested and demonstrated at 10 customers. In addition investigations on customer realtions and future system cost and quality will be made. A very rough project cost estimate is 4.75 MSEK. To further investigate the possibilities of sensor networks in the gas distribution business also a research project is proposed. The research project will investigate new technology for estimating data on energy usage and system performance and system daignoses. Furhter architectures for suitable for networked sensors fusion in gas metering will be investigated. Project results will possibly provide more cost efficient system maintenance and improved system energy efficiency. A research project over 3.5 year is cost estimated to 5.82 MSEK.
