Functional Safety in All-Electric Subsea Control Systems Objectives/Scope: This paper discusses a novel all-electric control system architecture that uses batteries instead of mechanical springs to provide the required energy for fail-safe valve actuation. To evaluate the reliability of the safety instrumented system, the functional safety principles are explored. Methods, Procedures, Process: The paper covers the […]

DNV GL – Bjørn Søgård

All-electric for barrier elements Subsea all-electric has been discussed for at least 25 years, but has not yet been implemented to an industrial scale for well barrier elements. With the introduction of subsea compression stations, the default control and actuation principle is all-electric. However, for the simpler control system used for well barrier elements, the […]
