A Phase Difference Measurement Method Based on the Extended Kalman Filter for Coriolis Mass Flowmeters


According to the characteristics of stable single-phase flow, a phase difference measurement method based on the extended Kalman filter is proposed in this paper for use with Coriolis mass flowmeters. Firstly, the Mallat algorithm is applied to filter out interference signals. Then, the frequency and phase difference of the two reconstructed signals are detected through the extended Kalman filter. Compared with the sliding Goertzel algorithm or discrete time Fourier transform, the proposed method does not need to predict the signal frequency and avoids quadratic error. Simulations and experiments show that the proposed method has stronger anti-interference, higher measurement accuracy and lower relative error than the existing method based on the Hilbert transformation.
