    • Developing a dynamic control system for mine compressed air networks 

      Van Heerden, Schalk Willem (2014)
      Mines in general, make use of compressed air systems for daily operational activities. Compressed air on mines is traditionally distributed in two typical fashions. Firstly, direct pipe feed systems for single shafts or ...
    • Development of an energy management solution for mine compressor systems 

      Du Plessis, Johan Nicolaas (North-West University, 2010)
      Eskom is under increasing pressure to provide reliable and sustainable electricity. Demand Side Management (DSM), offers a short– to medium–term solution to this problem. During 2009, the mining sector consumed approximately ...
    • A dynamic optimal control system for complex compressed air networks 

      Van Heerden, Schalk Willem (North-West University (South Africa) , Potchefstroom Campus, 2016)
      Mines use large compressed air networks to supply shafts and processing plants with compressed air. These networks can be complex where multiple compressors are located at different locations. To add to the complexity of ...
