    • Reconfiguring mining compressed air networks for cost savings 

      Bredenkamp, J.I.G.; Van der Zee, L.F.; Van Rensburg, J.F. (IEEE, 2014)
      The ever-growing human population, limited energy resources and the effect of greenhouse gas emissions have become major global concerns for the energy sector. This includes the electricity generation sector. This dilemma ...
    • A simple demand-side management solution for a typical compressed-air system at a South African gold mine 

      Liebenberg, Leon; Velleman, Douglas; Booysen, Walter (ERC (Energy Research Centre), 2012)
      Once designed, mine compressed-air systems tend to operate at peak levels throughout the life of the mine, despite there being significant periods when this air quantity is not required. This is mainly due to lack of ...
    • The value of simulation models for mine DSM projects 

      Van Niekerk, Willem Frederik (North-West University, 2012)
      Energy shortage, escalation of energy cost and climate change have led to an increased focus on energy conservation worldwide. In order to curb the increase in electricity demand, Eskom has introduced demand-side management ...
