System for Wave Compensation of Deep-Water Exploration Extraction Equipment


Article Preview

In order to reduce the influence of the bench extraction equipment from the working deep-water exploration ship when it has swing or heave movement by wind and waves, according to the 3000m deep-water exploration ship work condition and the structural parameters, through analysing and calculating, wave compensation control system of deep-water exploration ship bench extraction equipment was researched. Modeling and simulation analysis were done used by dynamic system software Matlab/simulink which has the functions of modeling and simulation. So that displacement response simulation curve of wave compensation system was obtained, which can be utilized to analyze the motion compensation effect of bench further.
