The main goal of the presented work is to analyse the performance of the Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP) neural network for flow regime classification based on sets of simulated Electrical Capacitance Tomography (ECT) data. Normalised ECT data have been used to separately train several MLPs employing various commonly used back-propagation learning algorithms, namely the Levenberg-Marquardt (LM), Quasi-Newton (QN) and Resilient-Backpropagation (RP), to classify the gas-oil flow regimes. The performances of the MLPs have been analysed based on their correct classification percentage (CCP). The results demonstrate the feasibility of using MLP, and the superiority of LM algorithm for flow regime classification based on ECT data.
