Is it right to add instantaneous flow rate eg A (mmscfd) + B (mmscfd) = C (Total) or use PI Totalizer for it.
Where are you trying to perform this calculation? In AF?If so, you can either use an AF Formula or an Analysis (if you want to historize the result)
Is A and B two different PI Points/AF Attributes? Or is it two different events within the same PI Point?
When you say PI Totalizer, do you mean the PE TagTot() or a totalizer PI Point?
A & B are PI Points.
Am Trying to this calculation in PI, not AF.
As I mentioned in my previous reply, you can do this easily enough. If you are not using AF, then this is a simple Performance Equation - 'TagA' + 'TagB'.
Yes, you can add these two flow rates together, and get a total instantaneous flow rate for these two wells. If you want to get the total flow for a period, then you could use a PI Totalizer for this. If you are using AF analyses, use the TagTot() function, and don't forget to use an appropriate conversion factor, although your UoM is a daily rate so no explicit conversion should be needed.
