Physical Description

born digital

abstract
The project of interest is a new type of wireless signal relay system for use in directional oil drilling. The system is meant to relay data from the directional sensor at the base of the drill up to a receiver on the surface. The current method used to relay this information is through sonar pulses through the drilling fluid. But this approach is slow and inefficient, and it requires that the drill be stopped while information is read. This new system should be faster and will be usable while the drill is running. The Mechanical Engineering aspect of the project is to design the housing, and the power supply system for wireless electronic devices. The power will be generated by the drilling mud flowing through a turbine which drives a generator. A housing consisting of a turbine, generator, and a relay device is placed at distance intervals along the drill pipe. The information will be relayed from one device to the next, all the way from the base of the pipe to the surface. Whether such a system is feasible will be verified by the project.
