A Leak Detection and Isolation (LDI) algorithm based on a State Estimation Observer is designed and tested in real-time to locate a water-leak on a plastic pipeline prototype. In order to tackle the problem of friction variations in such a pipeline, the explicit so-called Swamee-Jain equation is implanted for the friction, instead of a constant parameter as(More)
A study of the friction model for the leak detection with a nonlinear observer is presented. Classically the friction model in leak detection algorithms only relies on a constant parameter. In the present work, the use of a more elaborate friction model is considered, with a coefficient explicitly depending on the flow, either algebraically, or even(More)
