Abstract
Transient pressure wave detection analysis to detect the location of leakage on a pipeline containinghydrogen-natural gas mixture is presented. The transient pressure wave is generated either by rapid or sudden closure of the downstream shut-off valve. The governing equations of unsteady, compressible and isothermal one-dimensional flow are solved using the reduced order modelling technique. The solutions obtained when the transient condition is generated using the rapid closure valve show good agreement with published results. When the sudden closure valve is considered, the transient pressure, celerity wave, mass flux and the amount of leak discharge are shown to increase when the hydrogen mass ratio is increased. The amount of leak discharge which is calculated based on the computed celerity and pressure waves is found to be dependent on the leak positions.
