      South Africa is the thirtieth driest country in the world and is classified as a semi-arid area. The annual rainfall differs from less than 200 mm at the west coast to more than 1000 mm on the east coast. The primary use ...
    • DSM strategy for national water pumping systems 

      Nortjé, André (North-West University, 2012)
      The continual increase in electrical energy demand in South Africa has resulted in a precariously low reserve margin in supply from the primary utility, Eskom. This resulted in extensive load shedding throughout the country. ...
    • Electricity cost optimisation of a surface potable water pump system 

      Slade, Michael Peter (North-West University, 2007)
      South Africa is fast approaching an era where its electrical energy demand will surpass the generating capacity of it's primary utility. The reason for this is due to the fact that over the past 10 years, the economic ...
    • Energy savings through the automatic control of underground compressed air demand

      The sole electricity supplier in South Africa, Eskom, currently has an electricity supply crisis. The supplier requires additional available electricity urgently, particularly during the evening peak period between 18:00 ...
    • A new approach to ensure successful implementation and sustainable DSM in RSA mines 

      Le Roux, Daniël Francois (North-West University, 2005)
      In this study a new tool was developed that made new approaches possible for the successful implementation of Demand Side Management (DSM) projects. The new approaches are incorporated into a generic tool that makes it ...
    • Research into real-time energy management on old gold mines 

      De Lange, Nico Louis (North-West University, 2006)
      The South African Electricity Supply Industry is one of the backbone industries in South Africa. During 2003, it became clear that the demand for electricity in South Africa was increasing at a rate that had not been ...
    • Strategies to revive DSM mine pumping projects under the new ESCo model 

      Van der Merwe, Morné (North-West University (South Africa) , Potchefstroom Campus, 2017)
      South Africa has a highly energy intensive economy dependent on a generation fleet of mostly ageing coal-fired power stations struggling to keep up with demand. The mining industry, and specifically mine pumping systems, ...
