Dynamic Deformation Monitoring of Offshore Oil Platforms with Integrated GNSS and Accelerometer





Dynamic deformation monitoring is a crucial component of the structural health monitoring of an offshore oil platform. Given the insensitivity of the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) to high-frequency vibration information, a combination of GNSS and accelerometer is used for vibration monitoring of platform structures. A hybrid filter based on complementary ensemble empirical mode decomposition (CEEMD) combined with a Chebyshev filter is proposed to process the monitoring data. The extracted GNSS low-frequency displacement is fused with the high-frequency displacement obtained from acceleration integration to obtain the overall dynamic displacement of the platform. The experimental analysis shows that the combination of t-test and correlation coefficient can select the required intrinsic mode function (IMF), the proposed hybrid filter can reduce the noise error to a certain extent, and the quadratic frequency domain integration of the acceleration data can avoid the influence of the integration trend term. The correlation coefficient between the overall reconstructed displacement and the original GNSS monitoring data was 0.8576, and the signal correlation after denoising and refactoring was more than 85%, thereby preserving the essential information components. Integrated GNSS and accelerometer monitoring systems complement each other’s advantages, compensating for their shortcomings in monitoring the dynamic deformation of a structure.
