The PPS electric submersible pump monitoring system measures pressure, temperature, pump operating parameters, and vibration on the x, y and z axes. One of the key advantages of the PPS system is the high level of accuracy and resolution provided for all measurements.
One gauge is placed underneath the ESP motor in line with the completion string and is responsible for measuring intake pressure and temperature, discharge pressure, motor y-point voltage, current leakage, motor winding/oil temperature and vibration (x, y, z). The discharge pressure is routed through a pressure tube.
Typically the pump discharge measurements are used to diagnose the condition of the pump. This allows for accurate forecasting regarding pump maintenance and helps increase longevity.
