Architecture of the leak detection system is presented, and the leak detection method based on dynamic pressure and wavelet analysis is studied in this paper. The feature of dynamic pressure which is generated by the leakage of pipeline is analyzed. The dynamic pressure signal of pipeline internal pressure is acquired by dynamic pressure sensor when leakage occurs, and the signal is analyzed by wavelet analysis method to detect the singularity, and the singularity is used to recognize and locate the leak. From the comparison of analysis results between dynamic pressure and static pressure, in order to improve the sensitivity and stability of the leak detection system, a polling rule between dynamic and static pressure is implemented. Field tests of the leak detection system are presented and analyzed. The results of the field tests demonstrate that the leak detection method based on dynamic pressure and wavelet analysis can detect pipeline leak rapidly and locate the leak precisely. This leak detection system has been applied in 5000 km pipeline or so.
