The dynamic pressure transmitter based on piezoelectric dynamic pressure transducer is designed. The characteristic of dynamic pressure transmitter when pipeline leak happened is analyzed. The dynamic pressure signal is suitable for pipeline leak detection for quick-change of pipeline internal pressure, while the static pressure is suitable for slow-change of pipeline internal pressure. This paper indicated that the dynamic pressure signal could be adjust to this detection that the pressure changes quickly in the pipeline. Field tests show that the proposed method detects pipeline leak rapidly and precisely. The field test in 68.2 km pipeline shows that the least detected leakage ratio with dynamic pressure method is 0.6 percent pipeline throughput and location error is 80 m.
