Zero-hazard gas storage by multisensing optical monitoring system

Objetivo

The ZEM project addresses the development of a monitoring system to verify the integrity of composite high-pressure tanks for natural gas or hydrogen. Stationary and mobile applications will be considered and a demonstrator related to vehicle propulsion will be developed. Currently proposed inspection techniques of composite vessels involve off-vehicle visual inspection and pressure testing which is labour intensive and requires expensive equipment. The proposed approach, based on fibre optic sensors, facilitates simple but detailed evaluation of the structural integrity, monitored on-line during tank refuelling. The project focuses in particular fibre optic sensors and their embedding in the material, composite tank manufacturing, signature recognition algorithms and interrogation methods.
