Abstract: As the price of natural gas increases and the energy content becomes more vari able due to an increasing number of supply sources, the need for accurate measurement of total energy flow becomes more apparent. Existing total energy flow measurement techniques combine the measurements of a volumetric flow measurement device ana an energy content measurement device to measure total energy flow. The Gas Research Institute (GRI) has initiated two projects to develop a total energy flow meter that combine both volumetric and energy content measurement into one device. One oevice is an adaption of the coirmercially available Therm-Titrator, while the second devices based on optical techniques that measure the energy flow in a nonintrusive manner. Field test results and future plans are discussed in this paper.
