Keywords: Multiphase flow measurement | cyclonic separator | automatic control strategies.

This paper shows the development of a portable multiphase flow measurement system based in cyclonic separation technology GLCC@1. This system is aimed for oil well measurement and was developed in three phases; the first devoted to the geometric design of a cyclonic separator by means of design software GLCC V7.8 and the selection of measurement instrumentation and flux control valves. In the second phase, the automatic control system was designed for the implementation of four control strategies each one related with a possible scenario of the well behavior. The third constitutes the integration of the measurement and control devices through a user interface aimed for visualization, information processing and system's operation and control. Experimental results in oil well measurements show the efficiency and workability of the integrated system.
