Fracturing Well Site Automation System:

With the market for extracting natural gas via hydraulic fracturing experiencing a rapid evolution in the U.S., wellsite automation becomes more important for speed, efficiency, and safety. A market leader in well fracturing services recently hired DSA to automate their wellsite activities with a multipoint wireless system that replaced fully manual control of onsite material delivery and pumping equipment with a software-driven automated system. Automatic control of proppant and additives, plus full pump equipment control combined with instant real-time feedback were combined with wireless networking to create a state-of-the-art jobsite control system that increased worker safety and service efficiency for DSA’s client.

Variable Frequency AC Generation and Power Quality Measurement System:

When a leading supplier of high voltage, high current test Systems needed a better system to test large AC motors and transformers and take power quality measurements, they came to DSA to provide a custom solution. DSA was able to replace power metering measurements that previously cost upwards of $50,000 each with a faster, more economical system. In addition, the DSA system provided precise digital control of power transistors to generate customized AC waveforms to the motors under test, where previous generations of test systems did not allow variable frequency testing. In addition, DSA’s adaptive automation approach allowed the client to receive a system that used modular software and off-the shelf hardware components, allowing the client’s own engineers to reconfigure the system in the future to support related power generation and PQM activities.
