Advanced Closed-Loop Reservoir Management for Computationally Efficient Data Assimilation and Real-Time Production Optimization of SAGD ReservoirsDownload
Steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD), an in-situ thermal oil recovery method is successfully utilized to extract bitumen from the Canadian oil sands. To improve the reservoir performance, an idea of closed-loop reservoir management (CLRM) was proposed that comprises near-continuous data...
In this thesis, we propose a computationally efficient economic model predictive control (EMPC) design which is based on a well-known methodology --- the separation of the control and prediction horizon. The extension of the prediction horizon of EMPC is realized by employing an auxiliary control...
Distributed parameter systems (DPSs) are distinguished by the fact that the states, controls, and outputs may depend on spatial position. The certain class of dissipative DPSs includes many underlying chemical and mechanical spatiotemporal phenomena such as chemical reactions, convection and...
Distributed parameter systems (DPS) are models of fundamental conservation laws in industrial processes, such as chemical, petroleum, metallurgical and solar thermal energy processes. The major drawback of DPS models is that they take form of partial differential equations (PDEs) containing...
In the steam methane reforming process, improvement of the reformed gas outlet temperature control performance can lead to a larger hydrogen production rate, while ensuring safe process operation. In this work, a side fired primary gas reformer is investigated. The three objectives of this work...
The presence of alternans, which is a persistent alternation in the cardiac action potential duration, has been linked to the onset of ventricular arrhythmia, which may lead to sudden cardiac death. In this thesis, we examine the problem of alternans annihilation in a 1D cable of cardiac cells...
Real-Time Feedback Control of the SAGD Process using Model Predictive Control to Improve Recovery: A Simulation StudyDownload
Scope of the Work: For over a decade, the oil industry has been moving to “smart fields”, which deploy wells with remotely operated valves and permanently installed downhole sensors for real-time pressure and temperature measurements. Real-time data from these “intelligent wells” provide key...
