The existing Oil-Pumping Unit (OPU) system has a high power consuming process. It has the incapability of OPU's structural health monitoring. A sensor network based intelligent control is proposed for power economy and efficient oil-well health monitoring using wireless sensor network. The proposed system consists of three-level sensors: First Level Sensors (FLS) - designed with a temperature sensor, a voltage sensor, a current sensor, level sensor, gas sensor and a pressure sensor used for oil-well data sensing.
