Stick-slip oscillation in drill-string is a universal phenomenon in oil and gas drilling. It could lead to the wear of drill bit, even cause catastrophic failure of drill-strings and measurement equipment. Therefore, it is crucial to study drilling parameters and develop appropriate control method to suppress such oscillation. This paper studies a discrete model of the drill-string system taking into account torsional degree-of-freedom, drill-string damping, and highly nonlinear friction of rock-bit interaction. In order to suppress the stick-slip oscillation, a new proportional-derivative controller, which can maintain drill bit’s rotation at a constant speed, is developed. Numerical results are given to demonstrate its efficacy and robustness.
