GE 752 DC Drilling Motor
Each drive assignment will run a GE 752 DC Traction Motor (shown at right). There are a total of 16 of these motors on the vessel controlling 4 Mud Pumps (8 motors total), 4 Anchor Winches, 3 Drawworks and Rotary Table. Typically these motors are the workhorses on most drill rigs.
Each DC motor can be run from as many as 3 different drive bays. There are many reasons for this. For example, if maintenance or repairs are required on 1 drive bay, another drive bay can be used. Also the DC drive bay lineup is separated into 2 sections, each having 5 drive bays, so if 1 section is down the rig will still be functional.
As of June 2007 we are very close to the completion of the manufacturing portion of this project and have started the testing phase. We will be shipping 5 DC drive bays and 1 of the 2 Isolation Switch bays after completion of testing and DNV approvals.
Variable speed DC drives are widely used in the oil drilling industry for a variety of applications, including drilling, mud pumps, and drawworks. These drives offer precise control over the speed and torque of electric motors, enabling them to efficiently power drilling equipment.
One of the primary advantages of using variable speed DC drives in the oil drilling industry is their ability to provide a constant torque output at varying speeds. This is particularly important in drilling operations, where the drill bit must maintain a constant torque while drilling through different types of rock formations. By adjusting the speed of the electric motor driving the drill, variable speed DC drives can help maintain a consistent torque output, improving drilling efficiency and reducing wear and tear on equipment.
Another benefit of variable speed DC drives is their ability to save energy. By controlling the speed of the electric motor, these drives can match the power output to the actual load requirements of the drilling equipment. This can significantly reduce energy consumption and operating costs, making variable speed DC drives an attractive option for the oil drilling industry.
Variable speed DC drives play a critical role in the oil drilling industry by providing precise control over the speed and torque of electric motors. Their ability to maintain a constant torque output at varying speeds and save energy makes them an essential tool for improving drilling efficiency and reducing operating costs.
