  • Choke Valve Technology in Subsea Environments
    • Authors: Tattersall; S.
      Pages: 104 - 108
      Abstract: For as long as oil has been produced, techniques have been developed to control flow, and choke valves are an integral element of this vital requirement. This paper explores the history of the industry’s move from surface to subsea production and the translation of topside choke valve technology to the more challenging, underwater environment. It considers the types of valves available for different operating conditions and the importance of specifying a valve correctly to avoid early deterioration, costly maintenance or production outages. It explores the future challenges that the oil and gas industry faces and the advances in control valve technology that will support the ongoing development of seafloor processing techniques.

  • Some Thoughts and Practice on Performance Improvement in Distributed
           Control System Based on Fieldbus and Ethernet
    • Authors: Liang, G; Li, W.
      Pages: 109 - 118
      Abstract: In this paper, the issue of improving control performance of a network-based control system in a different perspective from control algorithms was fully addressed. Some important performance-affecting elements including design of network architecture, configuration, and delay compensation were investigated and some methods presented. The presented design and implementation of a network-based cascade control system with a real laboratory pilot plant involved adopting two different control approaches based on Foundation Fieldbus and Ethernet, respectively. We presented some practically feasible approaches to improve control performance of the system, including improved function block configuration scheme, synchronization control methodology based on IEC61499, output estimation algorithm based on neural network, and methods for reducing network transmission by improving hardware and network architecture. Control effects under the proposed methodologies were also given. Experimental and on-site practice validated these methodologies.
