This work proposes the design of a monitoring system for the sensing of variables in a well control system (accumulator), for which reengineering is applied to measure pressure and system level, with activation of sound and visual alarms. An accumulator is a unit used to operate hydraulically BOP (Blowout Preventer) components. The monitoring system in the proposed accumulator is based on the sensing of three variables: system pressure, manifold pressure, and annular pressure. In this project, to develop the design, an in-depth study, and analysis of the BOP system is carried out to avoid errors that affect the accumulator's physical integrity. API (American Petroleum Institute) standards are also considered. As a result, the proposed design serves as the basis for the company to take an interest in deploying electronics to the other workover equipment to make them safer and more reliable.
