microDRIVE Variable Speed DrivesMaximize uptime while reducing capital investment
Baker Hughes’ microDRIVE™ variable speed drive (VSD) is the industry’s first VSD specifically designed for low horsepower and low flow systems, providing maximized uptime in an economical, oilfield-ready system.
A VSD maximizes production by adapting to the changing conditions of the downhole production environment. A VSD provides a critical advantage over constant speed controllers by allowing operators to adapt the operation of the system to meet the dynamics of the reservoir.
The microDRIVE VSD offers many of the same benefits of larger VSDs but in a small, easy to install, economical enclosure. The microDRIVE VSD, when coupled with a Baker Hughes electrical submersible pumping (ESP) system, progressing cavity pumping (PCP) system, or HPump™ horizontal surface pumping system, will ensure system reliability. The microDRIVE VSD will maximize uptime and production levels through innovative software and electronics.
The user interface is the venerable graphic control system (GCS) providing a user-friendly system that logs and communicates data from the VSD and any downhole gauge to a laptop, SCADA, or directly with the Baker Hughes Vision™ monitoring system. The microDRIVE VSD comes standard in a NEMA 4 enclosure for superior protection of sensitive electronic devices in outdoor installations.
