Autonomous complex for electro-thermal heating of oil wells fed by a photovoltaic installation
Department of General Engineering,Saint Petersburg Mining University, Saint Petersburg, Russia
Paraffin deposits are a serious problem causing complications in oil production. This article describes the creation of a complex operatingonphotovoltaic installations to combat paraffin deposits. The authors offer an innovative method for accurate calculation of the parameters of photovoltaic installations, taking into account changes in total solar radiation, geographical and climatic conditions, the angle of inclination of solar panels, characteristics of the power source, and oil parameters. Measurements of solar radiation are carried out on the basis of mathematical and simulation modeling in Matlab Simulink. The results of the studies confirm the adequacy of the proposed method of oil well heating. This method of electric heating has a simple design and does not require underground works and well shutdown. Thus, it will improve the efficiency of oil production, prevent the formation of paraffin deposits, and ensure energy savings by reducing power losses and electricity consumption.
