In this work we apply the simulated annealing (SA) and genetic algorithms (GA) inversion methods to the reconstruction of permittivity images from electrical capacitance tomography (ECT) measurements. The forward problem (i.e., to find the mutual capacitance data for a given permittivity distribution in the sensor) is calculated by using a finite-volume space discretization method in order to avoid singularity problems at the centre of the pipe (as occurs with the finite difference method), and… CONTINUE READING
