Optimization Design of Beam Pumping Unit Based on Response Surface Method
An optimization design method is developed for the beam pumping unit, which is based on the API-RP-11L design criteria. The Response Surface Method is used to calculate the structural reliability of the beam pumping unit. The optimization design method not only provides an efficient and fast optimization tool for the modular design of the beam pumping unit, but also offers an integral design calculation in accordance with the API design code. The function and theory of this optimization design method are given by this paper, as well as some concrete calculation examples.
