1. A system comprising:
an electric mixer to mix a specified well cement slurry;
a measurement device connected to the electric mixer to directly measure electrical power supplied to the electric mixer in mixing the specified well cement slurry; and
a computer system comprising:
one or more processors; and
a computer-readable medium storing instructions executable by the one or more processors to perform operations comprising:
calculating a determined energy to mix the specified well cement slurry from the measuring;
comparing the energy to mix the specified well cement slurry with an energy required to mix the specified well cement slurry using the field equipment for mixing the specified well cement slurry at a well site, the field equipment being of a different configuration than the electric mixer; and
based on the comparing, determining whether the specified well cement slurry needs redesigning according to capabilities of the field equipment.
