The Baker Hughes Electrospeed Advantage™ variable speed drive (VSD) increases up time and reliability of your electrical submersible pumping (ESP) system. This drive’s control system software reduces power and downtime costs while optimizing production. Engineers from Baker Hughes designed the Electrospeed Advantage drive to solve the most common daily ESP problems including: gas locking, difficulty starting, power consumption, and power sags.
Backed by 30 years of VSD innovation for the oil and gas industry, the Electrospeed Advantage drive is offered as part of the next generation of ESP control products.
Software to solve recurring ESP problems
Intelligent production software within the drive offers specific solutions to recurring ESP problems:
The foundation of the Electrospeed Advantage drive’s functionality is Real-Time Torque Command (RTTC), which delivers the exact amount of torque required at the right time. Torque is calculated in real time, enabling precise control in the presence of varying loads. The capability to load modular, built-for-purpose, production-assisting software improves ESP system performance.
Based on our proven Electrospeed 3 VSD, this drive optimizes your ESP operations and boosts system reliability.
The Electrospeed Advantage VSD’s plug-and-play compatibility with downhole sensors enables a holistic view of downhole and surface conditions. Baker Hughes AMBIT™ monitoring and automation service seamlessly connects to deliver data from the wellsite for a powerful decision-making tool in your office.
MaxRate™ software works with the Electrospeed Advantage™ variable speed drive to deliver specific solutions for recurring ESP problems, including gas slugs and gas locking.
