FastCAP's Ulyss EP for Mud Pulse Telemetry

White Paper Synopsis

In this paper, we’ll introduce FastCAP’s Ulyss EP as a solution for mud pulse telemetry that extends battery life, reduces cost, and improves safety. Mud pulse telemetry is a common method of transmitting digital information to the surface during Measurement While Drilling (MWD) and Logging While Drilling (LWD) operations. These systems rapidly modulate the flow of drilling fluid to create pressure waves that travel through the drill pipe. The resulting pressure waves are then decoded by a transducer on the surface. These systems, inherently, require an energy storage solution that can provide high power in short bursts.
