Abstract: The measurement of the flow rate of fans installed in systems or equipment with sensors on the fan itself allows better knowing or/and controlling the flow if it varies with time. This paper presents experimental results on a double-inlet forward-curved centrifugal fan equipped with static pressure taps flush-mounted in the inlet bells. Tests are performed on a test rig using orifice plates to establish the relationship between the measured pressure at the fan inlet and the known flow rate. The model is built using a Generalized Gauss Markov Regression. An uncertainty analysis is then made to evaluate the impact of the different uncertainty components on the calculated flow rate.
