Metrology for real-world domestic water metering

Project: EU project

Project Details


Characterising water meters in real-world conditions to improve their accuracy and to extend their life.        
To meet present-day demands for accurate metering, domestic water meters need to be tested in real-world operation conditions.
Project evaluates domestic water meters under realistic operation conditions in order to improve the accuracy of water consumption measurements and to extend meter life.          
VTT MIKES will set up and validate a test rig for dynamic load changes and test commercial in-use domestic water meters with the rig.
