Description

The U. S. Department of Energy’s Morgantown Energy Technology Center (METC) has developed a multi-level capacitance imaging system (CIS) for imaging flow patterns in its fluidized-bed research program. The CIS measures displacement current across a cold fluidized bed and provides researchers with a 3-Dimensional realtime display of bed density estimates while simultaneously recording data for post-run analysis. The CIS has evolved from a single level, 16-electrode, 49-pixel system to the present four-level, 32-electrode, 193-pixel system.
