Energy efficiency through variable speed drive control on a cascading mine cooling system
An ever-expanding global industry focuses on energy supply and use. Cost-effective electrical energy production and reduced consumption pave the way for this expansion. Eskom's demand-side management (DSM) initiative ...
Modernising underground compressed air DSM projects to reduce operating costs
Compressed air is an energy intensive utility that is frequently used in the deep level mining industry. Most compressed air networks are designed to ensure ample compressed air supply to consumers. This has created the ...
The impact of reducing mine chilled water supply during periods of low production
As part of the Demand Side Management (DSM) initiative, Eskom partially funds load management and energy efficiency projects. Large industries are therefore willing participants in the Eskom funded electricity savings ...
Practical considerations in energy efficient compressor set-point control strategies
Compressed air supply and demand strategies have received significant attention since integrated demand management was initiated by Eskom. Due to the expensive nature of this vastly utilised energy carrier, every increase ...
Strategies for energy efficiency funding in the absence of industrial Eskom-IDM support
In the absence of industrial Eskom-IDM (Industrial Demand Management) funding, industry is forced to look elsewhere for energy efficiency project funding. This paper outlines various taxes and government incentives for ...
