Abstract: Natural gas flow computers have been in use since the middle 1960s, becoming much more practical with the development of improved microprocessors in the 1980s and later advancements in more reliable transducers (e.g., temperature, pressure, differential pressure, etc.). In the earlier stages of development, gas flow computers calculated flow - and did very little else. Today in 2007, flow computers systems do much more than just measure flow, performing many SCADA-related tasks that are necessary in todays modern gas industry. Even so, and in the context of this paper, we will focus on the gas measurement related issues only.
