Intelligent Compensating Method for MPC-Based Deviation Correction with Stratum Uncertainty in Vertical Drilling Process

Flowchart of the compensation method

With the rapid development of control technology, increasing applications are using model predictive control (MPC) for deviation correction in vertical drilling. However, the accuracy of the predictive model is affected by the uncertainty of the stratum, which results in model mismatch and a reduction in control performance. In this paper, an intelligent compensating method is proposed for MPC-based deviation correction with stratum uncertainty in a vertical drilling process to increase control accuracy. First, a trajectory extension model is introduced as the predictive model for MPC, and the uncertainty of the stratum is discussed. Then, the compensation for the MPC is acquired based on a Gaussian fitting method and hybrid bat algorithm. Finally, based on the actual drilling data, a simulation is performed to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
