At this time, all new technology implementation, seismic data processing and interpretation projects are being operated by NPP Spetsgeofizika, founded in 2007. GDS retains its role as a petroleum geology consultancy and purveyor of innovative technologies.
The GDS VibSim Vibrator Simulator is designed to test and troubleshoot many vibrator control systems, such as GDS-I, GDS-I PLUS, GDS-II (Spetsgeofizika), Force I, Force II, Force III (SeismicSource), Vicont Sweep Master (Geosweep), Advance II and Advance III (Pelton).
Any of these systems would «see» a GDS VibSim unit as a seismic vibrator complete with all sensors and controls. Thus, the simulator may be used both to test vibrator control systems and to train vibrator operators without any fear that a trainee error will result in expensive repairs of a damaged vibrator's hydraulics system.
The simulator's interface functionality includes:
The TORQUE MOTOR, VALVE and MASS indicators display, respectively, the toque motor current, valve position and reaction mass position. The TORQUE MOTOR, VALVE and MASS potentiometers enable users to adjust simulated zero levels as needed. Both, the LED indicators and potentiometers, make the simulator suitable for training vibrators' operators.
The front panel has a test connector to output the following signals:
To operate the Simulator, proceed as follows:
Once calibration is finished, sweeps may be initiated manually or by launching VP.exe on a computer.
When a sweep is initiated the LEDs display simulated changes in the torque motor current, valve position and reaction mass position.
