Identification of a Surrogate Model for Economic Performance Prediction of Oil Reservoir Production under Waterflooding Process

Karim Salahshoor; Seyed morteza Hoseini

Volume 10, Issue 3 , July 2021, , Pages 99-116


  The model-based optimization of the waterflooding process has found significant scope for improving the economic life-cycle performance of oil fields due to geological and economic uncertainties compared to conventional reactive strategies. This paper proposes a new frequency-based system identification ...  Read More

Design and Practical Implementation of a New Markov Model Predictive Controller for Variable Communication Packet Loss in Network Control Systems

Karim Salahshoor; Babak Roshanipour; Iman Karimi

Volume 5, Issue 1 , January 2016, , Pages 53-64


  The current paper investigates the influence of packet losses in network control systems (NCS’s) using the model predictive control (MPC) strategy. The study focuses on two main network packet losses due to sensor to controller and controller to actuator along the communication paths. A new Markov-based ...  Read More

A New Method for Multisensor Data Fusion Based on Wavelet Transform in a Chemical Plant

Karim Salahshoor; Mohammad Ghesmat; Mohammad Reza Shishesaz

Volume 3, Issue 3 , July 2014, , Pages 62-74


  This paper presents a new multi-sensor data fusion method based on the combination of wavelet transform (WT) and extended Kalman filter (EKF). Input data are first filtered by a wavelet transform via Daubechies wavelet “db4” functions and the filtered data are then fused based on variance ...  Read More

Adoptive Control of Well Drilling Systems

Karim Salahshoor; Behnam Lotfi

Volume 2, Issue 4 , October 2013, , Pages 26-38


  Control of well drilling operations poses a challenging issue to be tackled. The loss of well control could lead to the occurrence of blowout as a severe threat, involving the risk of human lives and environmental and economic consequences. Conventional proportional-integral (PI) controller is a common ...  Read More

Fluid Injection Optimization Using Modified Global Dynamic Harmony Search

Mohammad Khalili; Riyaz Kharrat; Karim Salahshoor; Morteza Haghighat sefat

Volume 2, Issue 3 , July 2013, , Pages 57-72


  One of the mostly used enhanced oil recovery methods is the injection of water or gas under pressure to maintain or reverse the declining pressure in a reservoir. Several parameters should be optimized in a fluid injection process. The usual optimizing methods evaluate several scenarios to find the best ...  Read More
