A Prediction Model Based on SVR for Untwist Angle in Drilling Process
As slide steering technology has lower maintenance costs, it is widely used in geological drilling industry. In order to adjust the hole trajectory, this technology changes the drilling direction by controlling tool face angle of downhole power drill tool. However, due to the existence of the untwist angle, it is difficult to precisely control the angle, which will directly affect the quality of hole trajectory. So untwist angle prediction is the prerequisite of hole trajectory control. This paper introduces a common method for calculating untwist angle for generating the training set. And then factors that influence untwist angle will be analyzed. Meanwhile, based on the analysis and calculation results, support vector regression is introduced in the prediction algorithm to provide a new way for untwist angle prediction.
