Precise Determination of Volume Phase Fraction in Three Phase Mixture Using Electromagnetic Resonating Sensor (Published)

Phase fraction is one of the methods used in petroleum industry to meter and real time monitoring of oil production and extraction. The present study experiences and develops a new vertical resonant cavity made of Aluminum in vertical flow direction. It depends on measuring the reflected lector-magnetic field scattering parameters (S-parameters) for mixture statically and/ or dynamically in a new best microwave frequency range from 1-6 GHz. The volume fractions of water-oil-gas can be recognized depending on two horizontal shifts in frequency at main and about 5 GHz peaks at constant concentration of salinity and temperature range separately. Results show graduated shifts according to water volume fraction in mixture. The experimental results are confirmed that this non-intrusive and non-invasive sensor can be approved to get phase fraction accurately.
