2018–2021 Assessing and calibrating domestic water meters close to real-world conditions
To meet present-day demands for accurate metering, domestic water meters need to be tested in real-world operation conditions.
Project aims at creating infrastructure to enable an integral characterization of domestic water meters close to real-world operation conditions.
WP1: Infrastructure to assess domestic water meters under dynamic load changes
WP2: Metrology to assess the performance of domestic water meters under realistic operation conditions
WP3: Smart monitoring of small flow rates
WP4: Virtual flow meter
VTT MIKES will set up and validate a test rig for dynamic load changes and test commercial in-use domestic water meters with the rig. MIKES also participates in developing a virtual flowmeter which will allow to assess metering quality for typical European operation conditions and periods.
