Abstract

In this paper, the use of radial screens in an Electrical Capacitance Tomography (ECT) sensor is investigated with the aim of resulting in higher-resolution images. The effect of the screens on the quality of the reconstructed images was simulated. 12-electrode ECT sensors with and without screens were designed and tested. The capacitance between different electrode pairs was measured for two permittivity distributions. The obtained capacitance data were used to reconstruct images using the Projected Landweber Iteration algorithm based on linear and semi-linear ECT models. The sensitivity of the measurements and the accuracy of the obtained images for the ECT sensors with and without screens were analyzed. The main conclusion is that a little improvement in the quality of images can be achieved with the use of 12-Electrode ECT sensors with radial screen.
