• Embedded Model Predictive Control for an Electric Submersible Pump on a Programmable Logic Controller 

      Binder, Benjamin Julian Tømte; Kufoalor, Kwame Minde; Pavlov, Alexey; Johansen, Tor Arne (Conference object; Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Electric Submersible Pumps (ESPs) can be installed in oil wells to create artificial lift, in order to increase recovery from the reservoir, and boost the production rate. A Model Predictive Controller (MPC) for an ESP, ...
    • Improved predictions from measured disturbances in linear model predictive control 

      Binder, Benjamin Julian Tømte; Johansen, Tor Arne; Imsland, Lars Struen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Measured disturbances are often included in model predictive control (MPC) formulations to obtain better predictions of the future behavior of the controlled system, and thus improve the control performance. In the prediction ...
    • Production Optimization in a Cluster of Gas-Lift Wells 

      Binder, Benjamin Julian Tømte (Master thesis, 2012)
      Subsea petroleum extraction systems may be large and complex, and many decisions affect the production. Maintaining high production levels is not a trivial task. As decisions are made based on available information and ...
