Drilling rig hoisting platform security monitoring system has played a very important role in oil exploration. And drilling parameters and working condition of workers are particularly important, because these parameters indicate that whether the drilling work is safe and effective directly. A security monitoring system is established to provide the real-time parameters for drilling safety is the purpose of this study. The monitoring system includes a top drive, a traveling block hook, an oil derrick and a driller room, and the controller of the system is programmable logic controller PLC. The procedure of the system is written by the RSLogix5000 software, the PC configuration is used force control monitor configuration software. According to the system, top drive, driller room and environment wind speed parameters in real-time are collected and displayed in the configuration of upper computer, the collected parameters can be used to determine the working conditions of the top drive and to send timely warnings for inspection maintenance to avoid drilling safety accidents. Work fatigue remind of driller and regularly remind of derrick check can be as much as possible to reduce safety accidents. And automatic operation of traveling block hook reached the default point faster and more smoothly than manual operation given the other uncontrollable factors in manual operation. The application of the system is successfully working in the drilling work site. View Full-Text
