  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    The present invention relates to downhole drilling, and more particularly, to systems and methods for transmitting power and data to components of a downhole tool string. As downhole instrumentation and tools have become increasingly more complex in their composition and versatile in their functionality, the need to transmit power and/or data through tubular tool string components is becoming ever more significant. Real-time logging tools located at a drill bit and/or throughout a tool string require power to operate. Providing power downhole is challenging, but if accomplished it may greatly increase the efficiency of drilling. Data collected by logging tools are even more valuable when they are received at the surface in real time.
  • [0003]
    Many attempts have been made to provide high-speed data transfer or usable power transmission through tool string components. One technology developed involves using inductive couplers to transmit an electric signal across a tool joint. U.S. Pat. No. 2,414,719 to Cloud discloses an inductive coupler positioned within a downhole pipe to transmit a signal to an adjacent pipe.
  • [0004]
    U.S. Pat. No. 4,785,247 to Meador discloses an apparatus and method for measuring formation parameters by transmitting and receiving electromagnetic signals by antennas disposed in recesses in a tubular housing member and including apparatus for reducing the coupling of electrical noise into the system resulting from conducting elements located adjacent the recesses and housing.
  • [0005]
    U.S. Pat. No. 4,806,928 to Veneruso describes a downhole tool adapted to be coupled in a pipe string and positioned in a well that is provided with one or more electrical devices cooperatively arranged to receive power from surface power sources or to transmit and/or receive control or data signals from surface equipment. Inner and outer coil assemblies arranged on ferrite cores are arranged on the downhole tool and a suspension cable for electromagnetically coupling the electrical devices to the surface equipment is provided.
  • [0006]
    U.S. Pat. No. 6,670,880 to Hall also discloses the use of inductive couplers in tool joints to transmit data or power through a tool string. The '880 patent teaches of having the inductive couplers lying in magnetically insulating, electrically conducting troughs. The troughs conduct magnetic flux while preventing resultant eddy currents.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION AND THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT
  • [0031]
    FIG. 1 is an embodiment of a drill string 100 suspended by a derrick 108. A downhole assembly 103 is located at the bottom of a bore hole 102 and comprises a drill bit 104. As the drill bit 104 rotates downhole the drill string 100 advances farther into the earth The drill string may penetrate soft or hard subterranean formations 105. The downhole assembly 103 and/or downhole components may comprise data acquisition devices which may gather data. The data may be sent to the surface via a transmission system to a data swivel 106. The data swivel 106 may send the data to the surface equipment. Further, the surface equipment may send data and/or power to downhole tools and/or the downhole assembly 103.
  • [0032]
    Referring now to FIGS. 2 through 3, the downhole assembly 103 comprises a downhole tool string component 200 with a tubular body 202 comprising at least one end 203 adapted for threaded connection to an adjacent tool string component 201. The at least one end 203 of the downhole tool string component 200 may be a pin end while an adjacent end 204 of the adjacent tool string component 201 may be a box end or vice versa. The downhole tool string component 200 may be a drill pipe, drill collar, a bottom-hole assembly component, a heavy weight drill pipe, a cross over sub, a reamer, a jar, a production pipe, a mandrel, a sleeve, or combinations thereof. In the embodiment disclosed in FIGS. 2 through 3, the downhole tool string component 200 is a drill pipe and the adjacent tool string component 201 is a drill pipe.
  • [0033]
    The at least one end 203 of the downhole tool string component 200 comprises at least one shoulder 205 that abuts an adjacent shoulder 206 of the adjacent end 204 of the adjacent tool string component 201. At least two electrically conducting coils 207 are disposed within an annular recess 301 formed in the at least one shoulder 205. An annular trough 302 is also disposed in the annular recess 301 and houses at least one of the at least two electrically conducting coils 207. The adjacent shoulder 206 also comprises at least two adjacent electrically conducting coils 207 and an adjacent annular trough 302 that are disposed in an adjacent annular recess 301 formed in the adjacent shoulder 206 and are configured similar to the at least two electrically conducting coils 207 and the annular trough 302 in the downhole tool string component 200.
  • [0034]
    Referring to FIG. 4, each coil 207 of the at least two electrically conducting coils 207 is electrically insulated from each other. In the embodiment of FIG. 4, the at least two electrically conducting coils 207 comprises a first coil 303 and a second coil 304. The first coil 303 and the second coil 304 may be coated with an insulating material 407. The insulating material 407 may comprise a varnish, enamel, a polymer, or combinations thereof. A filler material 406 may be disposed in the annular trough 302 to fill in the empty space not occupied by the at least two electrically conducting coils 207. The filler material 406 may comprise a polymer selected from the group consisting of epoxy, natural rubber, fiberglass, carbon fiber composite, polyurethane, silicon, a fluorinated polymer, grease, polytetrafluoroethylene and perfluoroalkoxy, fluorinated ethylene propylene copolymer (FEP), or a combination thereof. The filler material 406 may be electrically insulating.
  • [0035]
    The annular trough 302 may comprise a material with a composition selected from the group consisting of ferrite, Ni, Fe, Cu, Mo, Mn, Co, Cr, V, C, Si, Zn alloys and combinations thereof. The at least two coils 207 may comprise an electrically conductive material such as copper. The at least two coils 207 in the downhole tool string component 200 and the at least two coils 207 in the adjacent tool string component 201 may couple when the downhole tool string components 200, 201 are connected together at their ends 203, 204 by inducing magnetic fields in each other when the coils 207 are electrically energized. When an alternating electrical current is passed through at least one of the at least two coils 207 of the downhole tool string component 200, the magnetic field from the electrical current may be concentrated by the annular trough 302. The concentrated magnetic field inductively influences at least one of the at least two coils 207 in the adjacent tool string component 201 generating an electrical current in the at least one of the at least two coils 207 in the adjacent tool string component 201. It is believed that the annular trough 302 may increase the efficiency of the electrical signal that is being transferred inductively between at least one of the at least two coils 207 in the downhole tool string component 200 and at least one of the at least two coils 207 in the adjacent downhole tool string component 201. All of the at least two coils 207 may be electrically energized and each coil 207 may carry a different electrical current or signal than the other coils 207. The annular trough 302 may concentrate the magnetic field from each electrical current of each energized coil 207. The annular trough 302 may concentrate the magnetic field from each electrical current of less than all of the at least two coils 207.
  • [0036]
    The first coil 303 of the at least two coils 207 may be housed within the annular trough 302 and may comprise at least two annular loops 401. In the embodiment of FIG. 4, the first coil 303 comprises six annular loops 401. A magnetic current with a frequency of 35 kHz to 150 kHz may be emitted from the first coil 303 when the first coil 303 is electrically energized. More specifically, a magnetic current with a frequency of approximately 55 kHz may be emitted from the first coil 303 when the first coil 303 is electrically energized. The first coil 303 in the downhole tool string component 200 may inductively transfer an electrical power signal to the first coil 303 in the adjacent downhole tool string component 201. The first coil 303 may comprise a single solid wire, litz wire, or combinations thereof.
  • [0037]
    The second coil 304 may also be housed within the annular trough 302. The second coil 304 may comprise a single annular loop 402. A magnetic current with a frequency of 2 MHz to 7 MHz may be emitted from the second coil 304 when the second coil 304 is electrically energized. More specifically, a magnetic current with a frequency of approximately 5 MHz may be emitted from the second coil 304 when the second coil 304 is electrically energized. The second coil 304 in the downhole tool string component 200 may inductively transfer an electrical data signal to the second coil 304 in the adjacent downhole tool string component 201. The second coil 304 may be grounded to the at least one shoulder 205 of the downhole tool string component 200. The second coil 304 may comprise a single solid wire.
  • [0038]
    The annular trough 302 may comprise two side walls 403 and a bottom 404 of uniform thickness 405. It is believed that an annular trough 302 with side walls 403 and a bottom 404 of uniform thickness 405 may maximize the magnetic saturation limits of the annular trough 302 thereby increasing the efficiency of the annular trough's 302 ability to concentrate the magnetic field of the electrical current of at least one of the at least two coils 207.
  • [0039]
    The magnetic properties of the annular trough may be optimized such that it works synergistically with only select coils. For instance, in downhole applications, the transfer of sufficient power across a few joints may be more difficult to achieve than the transfer of data across the same number of joints. It is believed that a larger volume of magnetic material in the annular trough of an optimized composition improves the power transfer. However, the thickness of the trough is limited by the shoulder width of the tool string component. Thus, in some embodiments all of the available shoulder width may be tailored to optimize the power signal by providing a trough composition optimized for only the first coil. In some embodiments, the data transfer provided by the second coil may actually be transparent to the annular trough, but the data will still transfer without the trough's aid. In some embodiments, the annular trough may be optimized for the second coil instead of the first. Generally, in most embodiments, the annular trough will concentrate all signals from all of the coils to some degree regardless of whether the trough's composition being optimized for one coil over the others as long as the other coils are located within the trough. However, a hybrid composition may be provided that concentrates the magnetic fields of both coils, while not being optimized for either.
  • [0040]
    FIGS. 5 a and 5 b respectively disclose a perspective view and an exploded view of an embodiment of the at least two coils 207 and the annular trough 302. The at least two electrically conducting coils 207 and the annular trough 302 may be part of a modular unit that plugs into an electrical circuit disposed in the downhole tool string component 200. A steel housing 305 may be disposed within the annular recess 301 and may house the annular trough 302. The first coil 303 may comprise a positive lead 501 and a negative lead 502 that connects the first coil into the electrical circuit disposed in the downhole tool string component 200. The second coil 304 may comprise a lead 503 that connects the first coil 304 into the electrical circuit disposed in the downhole tool string component 200. To complete the circuit, the other end of the second coil may be grounded through a solder, braze, bond, or otherwise to the steel housing, which in turn is in direct electrical contact with the pipe. Cables 209 may connect the leads 501, 502, 503 to the electrical circuit of the downhole tool string component 200. The electrical circuit may include pressure sensors, strain sensors, flow sensors, acoustic sensors, temperature sensors, torque sensors, position sensors, vibration sensors, geophones, hydrophones, electrical potential sensors, nuclear sensors, drill instruments, logging-while drilling tool, measuring-while drilling tool, computational board, drill string steering tools, downhole hammers, motors, downhole electrical generators, or combinations thereof. The electrical circuit may comprise an electronic amplifier disposed in the downhole tool string component that amplifies the electrical signal of at least one of the at least two electrically conducting coils 207.

The second coil 304 may also be disposed intermediate the steel housing 305 and the annular trough 302. FIG. 6 d discloses an embodiment wherein the second coil 304 is disposed inside the annular trough and proximate the top of the annular recess 301. The first coil 303 may be disposed inside the annular trough 302 and intermediate the second coil 304 and the bottom 404 of the annular trough 302.
  • [0042]
    Referring to FIGS. 7 a through 7 c, the annular trough 302 may be segmented where the segments 701 comprise different compositions. The different segments 702, 703 may alternate between each other. The at least two different ferrite alloys may be manganese zinc ferrite and nickel zinc ferrite. Each segment's composition may be optimized for a signal produced by different coils, thus providing assistance to more than one coil. It is believed that varying the composition of the annular trough 302 may enable the annular trough 302 to concentrate at least two different magnetic currents with differing frequencies simultaneously. The segments 701 may be arrayed such that segments of the same composition are aligned across from one another such as in the embodiment of FIG. 7 b. The segments 701 may be arrayed such that segments of differing composition are aligned across from one another such as in the embodiment of FIG. 7 c.
