Electrical Submersible Pumps (ESPs) are widely used in upstream oil production. The presence of a low concentration solid phase, particle-laden flow, in the production fluid may cause severe damage in the internal sections of the pump which reduces its operating lifetime. To better understand the ESP pump’s endurance, an ESP-WJE1000, manufactured by Baker Hughes Company was studied numerically to determine the pump’s flow behavior at its best efficiency point. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD… CONTINUE READING
