Yesterday, we looked at calibration of Coriolis mass flow meters in natural gas applications and mentioned piecewise linearization (PWL), but did not delve into it. Let’s do with today’s post. I found a presentation by Emerson’s Tonya Wyatt, Fine Tuning Coriolis Flow Meter Calibrations Utilizing Piece-Wise Linearization. The PWL calibration method basically looks at the […]
