Internal Projects

Studies on the effect of flow rate on H2 sensors (CEA/INERIS)

  • Description: ...
  • Interested partners: (please specify: organisation, contact person, interest, possible contribution)
    • Ernie Reinecke (FZJ)
      We are looking for an appropriate hydrogen concentration measurement system inside a large vessel.
      We could perform tests in a flow channel under well defined conditions on transient and long term behaviour of the sensors.
      Influence of flow rate, temperature (RT-120C), humidity could be evaluated.
    • David Hedley (HSL)
      We have acquired 12 TCG3880 mini-katherometer sensors. Work is in progress to design a housing; one sensor has already been damaged by rough handling.
      Crude work to assess the sensor performance for flow and temperature sensitivity has been performed. This needs to be refined:
      (1) the difference between flow and pressure sensitivity for a diffusion housing;
      (2) the effect of flow on a free sensor;
      (3) a possible heat sink effect caused by a housing.
      Further work on sensor response time and housing dead volume is needed. A calibration procedure is required.
      An amplifier with zero and gain settings is also under consideration for more remote sensing.

Studies on laser ignition (FZJ)

  • Description: We want to study experimentally the conditions that may lead to an ignition of hydrogen/air mixtures when using laser measurement techniques. Conditions and measurement set-up will be discussed with interested partners at the next WP2 meeting.
