UT Austin’s RAPID develops thermal model for top drive CBM

The Rig Automation Performance Improvement in Drilling (RAPID) consortium, established under the University of Texas at Austin, has developed a thermal model to track system parameters on top drives. In this video with Pradeep Ashok, Senior Research Scientist for Drilling Automation at UT Austin, he talks about what drove the development of this model and how it works, as well as the business case for applying condition-based monitoring (CBM) to today’s top drives. Watch the video from the 2018 IADC Drilling Engineers Committee Q4 Tech Forum, held in Houston on 14 November, for more information.
