Maximize the production in your oilfield pumping applications with the enhanced control and superior reliability of the Baker Hughes Vector Plus™ variable speed drive (VSD). Specifically designed to optimize artificial lift systems, the Vector Plus VSD simplifies pumping operations and maximizes run time as your well conditions change.
Performance longevity and unsurpassed service
The Vector Plus VSD provides more precise motor control compared to conventional switchboard systems. While switchboards let you turn the motor on and off, the Vector Plus VSD gradually increases or decreases the motor speed of your electrical submersible pumping (ESP) and horizontal surface pumping systems (SPS).
The VSD’s intelligent control capabilities let you remotely adjust motor speed from the surface for greater ease of use. You can also quickly adjust your lift system to changing well conditions, which avoids gas locking challenges while maximizing pump efficiency for optimal long-term production rates.
The Vector Plus VSD is fully compatible with other Baker Hughes artificial lift products, such as our Zenith™ downhole sensors, as well as downhole gauges from other manufacturers. This gives you the flexibility to deploy a more cost-effective, integrated solution based on your needs.
Use the system’s extensive data collection and event logging capabilities to track the performance and condition of your downhole pumping systems. The data, presented in an easy-to-use Human Machine Interface (HMI), helps you optimize your maintenance schedule and your well’s production uptime.
The Vector VSD delivers proven performance in ESP applications ranging from 100 to 1,000 horsepower. It is also designed to work on all worldwide power systems rated between 380 and 480 volts, in both 50 and 60 Hz applications. And the system’s outdoor NEMA 4 rating means that the enclosure is completely sealed against the outdoor environment to prevent the entrance of dust, dirt, and moisture.
As your production requirements grow more challenging and complex, the Vector Plus VSD is ready to improve your lift system control and give you the critical real-time data you need to make better production decisions.
