Using Model Based Design to Implement the Motor Control Logic of an Electric Downhole Flow Control Valve
Michel Gardes, Schlumberger
As part of the development process of a fully electric downhole flow-control valve, MathWorks Consulting Services worked with Schlumberger to achieve a major project milestone: the ability to demonstrate—from scratch, in less than a year, and in parallel to the design of the hardware—driving different models of electric motors as per client requirements. Simulation allowed validation of the control logic before any hardware was available, while code generation with Embedded Coder® enabled early integration and verification tests as soon as the first prototypes were released. Using Model-Based Design and generating code with Simulink® were essential to achieve the challenging objectives and timeline set by the client.
