Electric Drill Rig

Drilling area quieter with engines farther

Less danger of igniting flammable gases.
Easier to move rig to new location.
Electrical control of torque limits provides
better drilling control.
However: Electrical devices may require
trained specialists.
DC Motor
Variable RPM operation.
Maximum torque at zero
RPM. Good for drawworks.
Torque capability remains
constant over the operating
speed range.
DC motors are 800 to 1000
HP, and 800 Volt DC.

DC Drill Rig
Oldest type of electric drill rig.
DC motor speed varies with DC voltage.
Requires a DC generator for each DC

SCR Drill Rig
AC Generator output changed to DC
with special Silicon Controlled
Rectifiers. (SCR)
SCR contained in Switchgear house
not supplied by Cat.
600 Volt AC rectifies to 800 volt DC.
DC motors remain the same as on
DC rig.

SCR Rig Power Flow
SCR Drive Advantages
Less Engines/Generators Required
Less Engines Running
No Auxiliary Generators
High Load on Engines
Response on Hoisting
Adjustable Torque Limits
Variable Frequency
AC Drive
Utilizes variable RPM AC Motors.
Not as common yet.
Eliminates brush maintenance of DC
motors and eliminates drawworks brake.
AC generator does not have to be
oversize, (with diode front-end system).
Oilfield Bases
Over design required to maintain
alignment and prevent vibrations.
I-beam bases, by themselves, have not
proven successful.
Cat history:
18 inch semi-boxed beams.
21 inch boxed beams.
Tubular base-within-a-base design.
A Day in the Life of an
Oilfield Power Module

Rig transportation between jobs can cause misalignment.

So also can hull flexing on offshore drill rigs.
Original 18 inch Cat
base for DC drill rigs
Some versions
welded the
engine deep oil
pan into the base.

These cannot be
repowered with
3500 series.

(Some did have

3 point mounting.)
Special deep rails 18 inch Base
18-Inch Base

3500 Repower
easily accomplished

3500 Repower cannot

be accomplished
because of added
mounting blocks.
21-Inch Boxed
Beam Base
Boxed beam provides alignment and
resistance to vibration.
3 point mounting isolates package from
offshore rig hull movement.
21 inch base was rarely used on land rigs
because it was large, heavy and hard to 3
point mount.

Very easy to repower with 3500 series.

3-Point Mount Isolates
External Forces

3-Point Mount 4-Point Mount

21-Inch Cat
Oilfield Base
21-inch main beams.
Cross beams & boxing.

Engine supported on standard

10-inch rails.

Entire base 3-point mounted to offshore rig.

21-Inch Base

Deep Oil Pan Shallow Oil Pan

Easily accommodates either deep or shallow oil pans.

Works with 6.25 bore and 3500 series.
3500A on 21-Inch Base



Replacing D399 only requires repositioning

mounting blocks.
Consists of an inner and an outer base.
Inner base holds engine-to-generator
Built-in 3-point mount between inner and
outer bases.
Two different outer bases used:
25-, 30-, and 40-foot length
Lighter and lower than 21-inch base.
Two Bases Included

Inner tubular base removes 10-inch mounting rails.

Unique Application

Inner base only sold for

select applications. Special trailer power units.
D399 land rig has 7.12-inch
wider oil pan than 3500 series.

Base inserts would have to

be added between 3500 series
oil pan and existing inner base.
Has been done.

D398 repower with 3512 or

3508 would require drilling
matching holes into the old
inner base. Has been done.

Drill Rig Performance
(Generator Sizing)
Oversize generators for the engine capability
improves hoisting performance.
Oversize generators allows operation of
mudpumps over a broader operating stroke
This can be verified with a rig power analysis
performed for deep drilling (low PF), shallow
drilling (high PF), and hoisting (variable PF).
Analysis needs to consider local rig operating
