Hydroelectric power plants, when they are taking water from watercourses, are of course subject to maximum abstraction limits, and as they age and become less efficient, more water is required to generate a given amount of electricity.Read more
Flow Control and Measurement
Fluid Flow Control
Flow control is an advancing field of fluid dynamics, that describes the flow of liquids, gases and plasmas. Flow control of fluids can be accomplished by passive (require no energy) or active devices (require energy). Controlling and measuring the fluid flow is increasingly incorporated in many industries, ranging from aviation and defense, to the pharmaceutical industry.
Fluid Flow Measurement
Flow measurement is the determination of bulk fluid movement. The flow of fluids can be measured in a variety of ways. Measuring the flow of fluids is a critical need in many industrial plants. This Technology Zone offers an insight into the latest innovations in fluid flow measurement and control.
