Heated Element Velocimeter

Reference#: P00273


The present invention is a heated element sensor for detecting the flow rate of a fluid or other physical characteristics of a fluid. The invention teaches driving the thermo-resistive element along a profile having at least two states and measuring the power and temperature of the sensor at each state. In this way a dissipation coefficient can be determined and fluid flow and other physical characteristics determined without the need for ambient temperature to be determined.
