TGCC Chapter Meeting February 2017
Model Based Engineering of Blowout Preventer Hydraulic Controls
Blowout preventer (BOP) is electro-hydraulic equipment for managing wellbore fluids and for sealing the well in the event of influx. Performance and reliability analysis of blowout preventers have many challenges due to size, complexity and sensor availability. Mete will present the application of model based methods to assess design and availability of blowout preventer hydraulic control circuits.
is a Mechanical Engineering Ph.D candidate at the University of Houston and an assistant in Professor Matthew Franchek’s research team. Mete is working on model based design, analysis, control and diagnostics of multi-physics systems.
